    After a long and carefully study of the original books of Mulsant's published in 1862-1864 I've discovered order of dates of publishing of his books about Cerambycidae. On the basis new order data of publication his books needs change many names of Cerambycidae. Original books (scanned) can be downloaded from this site (with bookmarks inside pdf's).

     All changes of  the names (proposed changes to correct year and pagination in red) according to Annales (1862), Annales (1863) and Histoire (1863):              

"Annales..." (1862):

Phymatoderus puncticollis Mulsant, 1862: 405

genus Echinocerus Mulsant, 1862: 449 type species Cerambyx floralis Pallas, 1773
genus Isotomus Mulsant, 1862: 449 type species Callidium semipunctatum Fabricius, 1798(= Callidium speciosum D. H. Schneider, 1787)

"Annales..." (1863):

subgenus Lampropterus Mulsant, 1863:150 type species Necydalis femoratus Germar, 1824

Morimus asper funereus Mulsant, 1863: 215
genus Oplosia Mulsant, 1863: 236 type species Cerambyx fennicus Paykull, 1800 (= Exocentrus cinereus Mulsant, 1839)
subgenus Pityphilus Mulsant, 1863: 238 type species Cerambyx ovatus Goeze, 1777

The Basic

    Annales (Annales des sciences physiques et naturelles, d'agriculture et d'industrie, publiées par La Société impériale d'Agriculture, etc., de Lyon. Troiseime Série.) and "Histoire..." (1863) (Histoire naturelle des coléopteres de France. Longicornes.) appeared almost simultaneously. "Historie...", all in one book, repeated all contents of Annales (t.6,7 and 8). Under these circumstances, Histoire was published in 1863, after Annales 1863. Under these circumstances, Histoire appeared earlier than Annales 1864 and the names published in Histoire (1863) have priority over Annales (1864).

Reason of order

     In Historie.. (1863) ERRATA is present (p.583) but in Annales (1863) ERRATA is absent. screen>>>
In Histoire (1863) the signature is after the index of names: : "Extrait des Annales de la Société impériale d'agriculture, d'histoire naturelle et des arts utiles de Lyon. - 1862-1863". screen>>>
Moreover the book by Mulsant (1863b) was published as a single unit in 1863. There is no gap between pages 162 and 163, which contain a description of one species (Clytus arietis).

20.7.2012: It was published by Danilevsky (2012)(page 737):

NOTE:
As it was mentioned by Jacek Kurzawa (personal message, 2012), two publications in “Annales” appeared before the publication of the book “Histoire naturelle des coléopteres de France.” It is clear, becaus there is a reference to “Annales” in the beginning of the book in the page without number after “Table alphabetique”: "Extrait des Annales de la Société impériale d'agriculture, d'histoire naturelle et des arts utiles de Lyon. — 1862-1863." Moreover the book by Mulsant (1863b) was published as a single unit in 1863. There is no gap between pages 162 and 163, which contain a description of one species (Clytus arietis). The years of all names attributed in the catalog to Mulsant (1862) and Mulsant (1863) rest same, but the pages of the originals descriptions must be changed for several dozens of names in accordance to “Annales” (for example Alocerus fulvus Mulsant, 1862: 437 [1963b: 128], instead of Alocerus fulvus Mulsant, 1862: 128). Lepturinae were not published in “Annales” 1862, neither in 1863, but in “Annales” 1864 (together with the end of Lamiinae), so all original descriptions of Lepturinae (and a part of Lamiinae) are connected with Mulsant (1863b), as it is accepted in the Catalog. The further investigations on the exact dates of the publications of the corresponding volumes of “Annales” are desirable.

Bosquet (2016:377) was reported:

Longicornes. [3] + 590 pp. [DP: 1862-63 (title page), 2 January 1864 (Bibl Fr), January 1864 (Allg Bibl)]. Without qualification, Löbl and Smetana (2010: 803) reported that pages 1-480 were published in 1862 and pages 481-590 in 1863. Also issued in the Annales des Sciences Physiques et Naturelles d'Agriculture et d'Industrie de Lyon (Troisieme Série) 6 [1862]: 307-466 [DP: 1862 (title page), 9 May 1863 (Bibl Fr)], 7 [1863]: 97-320 [DP: 1863 (title page), 4 February 1865 (Bibl Fr)], 8 [1864]: 1-208 [DP: 1864 (title page)].
