This paper is an updating of the knowledge of the Cerambycidae fauna of Pakistan. We include some species preserved in the collection of the Department of Zoology of Kotli University, Pierpaolo Rapuzzi (private collection) and Dmitry Kuleshov (private collection). We list 56 species of Cerambycidae from Pakistan and Azad Kashmir; 15 of them are listed for the first time for Pakistan and for others species we give new localities. One new record for Turkey is given. This paper is only a preliminary study on the composition of the Pakistani fauna of Cerambycidae. It is evident how rich should be this country and many new records and new species are expected. For each species we provide the reference of the original description and its type locality, the general distribution of the species is given according the most recent literature
