A list of 69 species of Cerambycidae collected at 45 m height in a metallic tower of 50 m height, in a "platô de terra firme", in the Cueiras River basin, "Estação Experimental de Silvicultura Tropical, km 14 do núcleo ZF-2" in Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil. The collections were carried out monthly from January to December of 2004, during three nights of lunar transition third quarter monn/new moon from 18 p.m. to 6 a.m. The insects were collected over a vertical white sheet illuminated by a 250 watts mixed light and a 20 watts black-light (BLB) lamps. Were collected Prioninae (12 species), Disteniidae (one species), Cerambycinae (27 species) and Lamiinae (29 species). New species described: Physopleurus rafaeli, sp. nov. (Prioninae, Macrotomini); Oncideres tuberosa sp. nov. (Lamiinae, Onciderini),Plistonax rafaeli sp. nov. (Lamiinae, Acanthoderini) e Hemiloapis mena sp. nov. (Lamiinae, Hemilophini). Notes for Oncideres phaetusa Dillon & Dillon, 1946, a modified key to the species of Physopleurus Lacordaire, 1869 and a key to the species of Hemiloapis Galileo & Martins, 2004 are presented.
