Parandrinae is a subfamily of the longhorn beetle family (Cerambycidae). This subfamily includes only a few genera. Atypical for cerambycids, the antennae are quite short, and the tarsi have 5 easily visible segments; they are thus rather similar in appearance to stag beetles.

Parandrinae contains the following genera:[1]
