Dyschirius abbreviatus Putzeys, 1846 

Dyschirius abbreviatus  Putzeys, 1846 [January]: 12. Type locality: «Texas» (Putzeys 1861: 71), restricted to "Galveston [Galveston County]" by Putzeys (1867b: 51). Holotype [by monotypy] in MHNP (collection Chaudoir). Note. Putzeys (1846: 13) originally gave «Yucatan» as type locality but changed it to «Texas» later (Putzeys 1861: 71). This species is a senior primary homonym of Dyschirius abbreviatus  Chaudoir, 1846 [June].

Distribution.

This species inhabits the Coastal Plain ranging from the coast of southern North Carolina (Brunswick County, Ken Karns pers. comm. 2009) to southern Florida (Nichols 1988b: Fig. 5-5; Peck and Thomas 1998: 17), west to southeastern Texas (Putzeys 1867b: 51).

Records.

USA: AL, FL, GA, LA, MS, NC, TX

Note.

According to Whitehead (1970: 185), members of Dyschirius darlingtoni  Kult, 1950 from Mexico are probably conspecific with those of Dyschirius abbreviatus  .
