Dyschirius carrorum Bousquet, 1997 

Dyschirius carrorum  Bousquet, 1997a: 92 (as carri). Type locality: "Tp. 8 Rge. 14 W.1 Mer. [= about 8 km north of Glenboro], Manitoba" (original citation). Holotype (♂) in CNC [# 22220]. Etymology. This specific name was proposed for John Lawrence Carr [1922-2006] and Bertha Carr of Calgary, Alberta, who collected the holotype. Over several decades of collecting in western North America, the couple assembled a large and extremely valuable collection of beetles which they gave to the Canadian National Collection of Insects in 2000. Note. By a lapsus, carri was the original spelling of the specific name despite having been proposed for a man and a woman together. Because there is a clear evidence of an inadvertent error in the original publication, the spelling must be corrected (ICZN 1999: Article 32.5.1) and the original spelling is deemed to be carrorum (see ICZN 1999: Article 31.1.2).

Distribution.

This species is known only from the holotype collected in south-central Manitoba.
