Resumo

The mimetic relationships between cerambycid (mimics) and lycid beetles (models) are investigated in two forests of Southeastern Brazil. Eight lycidlike species of Cerambycidae were detected. The co-occurrence of the taxa and the greatest abundance of lycids through the time are evidences of the Batesian mimicry in Cerambycidae.
