The insect-host plants associations for 48 species of Cerambycidae (Coleoptera) from Buenos Aires province (Argentina) are summarized, including the previous records given in the literature, 12 associations in native plants (11 species of Cerambycidae in 6 species of plants) and 50 associations in exotic plants (18 Cerambycidae in 16 species of plants). To them are added the previous associations given for the Province of the Espinal, and the data now gathered of 6239 specimens (34 of Prioninae, 4564 of Cerambycinae, and 1641 of Lamiinae) belonging to 42 species of Cerambycidae reared from 108 species of plants. This last data includes 329 associations: 91 (27,6%) of them were found in native plants (36 species of Cerambycidae in 24 species of plants), and 240 (72,4%) in exotic plants (69 spp.) and some native plants (15 spp.) cultivated outs of its natural range (29 species of Cerambycidae in 84 species of plants). With the amount of localities of each insect- host plant association, the total number of associations increases to 501 records, 199 (39,8%) in native plants and 302 (60,2%) in exotic plants.
