A partial checklist with ten species under ten genera of four subfamilies of Cerambycidae from the Western Ghats of Goa state is presented. Out of these ten species of long-horned beetles, five species viz., Batocera rufomaculata (DeGeer, 1775), Tetraglenes hirticornis (Fabricius, 1798), Cyrtonops punctipennis (White, 1853), Acalolepta nivosa (White, 1858) and Xylotrechus smei (Castelnau & Gory, 1841) are reported for the first time from Goa. Among the four subfamilies, the Lamiinae is represented by five species, followed by Cerambycinae with three species, while Disteniinae and Prioninae are represented by one each. Images of some species in their natural habitat are provided along with updated information on their current geographical distribution.
