A preliminary molecular phylogenetic study of the longhorned beetle subfamilies Parandrinae and Prioninae (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) was undertaken. Sixty one species were sequenced, including 33 ingroup taxa representing 12 tribes and 25 genera. Twenty eight outgroup taxa representing five subfamilies (Aseminae, Cerambycinae, Disteniinae, Lamiinae, Lepturinae) were also included. Sequences were generated from four loci: 12S rRNA, 16S rRNA, 28S rRNA, and histone 3. Parsimony and Bayesian analyses were performed. Prioninae (including Parandrinae) was recovered as a monophyletic group sister to Cerambycinae.
