Bembidion hesperium Fall, 1910 

Bembidium hesperium  Fall, 1910: 95 (as hesperum). Type locality: "Vancouver Island [British Columbia]" (original citation), herein restricted to Duncan (CNC). Holotype (♂) in MCZ [# 23862]. Note. The name Bembidion hesperium  has been credited to Casey (1918: 9) by some authors on the basis that Casey proposed a replacement name for Bembidium hesperum  Fall, 1910, supposedly a junior primary homonym of Bembidion hesperus  Crotch, 1867. In fact, Casey (1918) emended Fall’s name to Bembidion hesperium  since the name Bembidion hesperum  is an incorrect latinization for Bembidion hesperium  (adjective) or Bembidion hesperus  (noun in apposition). Casey’s emendation is currently in prevailing usage and so deemed to be a justified emendation (ICZN 1999: Article 33.2.3.1).

Bembidion binarium  Casey, 1918: 9. Type locality: «California» (original citation). Lectotype (♂), designated by Lindroth (1975: 115), in USNM [# 36796]. Synonymy established by Lindroth (1962: 8).

Distribution.

This western species ranges from southeastern British Columbia to Vancouver Island, south to east-central California [see Maddison 1993: Fig. 269].
