The paper presents the first review of the composition and distribution of the species Lepturinae Latreille, 1802 subfamily (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) in the south-eastern Baltic region. A total of more than 3,000 records have been analyzed and more than 4,600 specimens collected since 1888 have been examined. The subfamily is confirmed to be represented by four tribes, 26 genera, and 38 species in the region. Previous records (published notifications) of seven species – Alosterna ingrica (Baeckmann), Brachyta interrogationis russica (Herbst), Euracmaeops marginatus (F.), Gnathacmaeops pratensis (Laichart.), Pachytodes erraticus (Dalman), Rhagium bifasciatum F. and Stictoleptura v. variicornis (Dalman) – were not confirmed in the region. The information on the distribution, frequency, and some features of ecology and zoogeography of 51 species found and expected to be found in the region is confirmed and detailed in the paper. Local temporal and geographical distributions of 36 species are mapped.
