Abstract

The longhorn beetle Cerambyx welensii Küster, 1845 is recorded for the first time from the Republic of North Macedonia. Five specimens (1 male and 4 females) were collected in July 2021 with feeding traps in an oak forest at Tri Krushi (foothills of Kitka mountain), Drachevo, Skopje. All of the seven species of Cerambyx reported in Europe are now known to occur in North Macedonia.
