Dyschirius erythrocerus LeConte, 1857 

Dyschirius erythrocerus  LeConte, 1857b: 78. Type locality: "Ohio; Pennsylvania" (original citation). Lectotype (♀), designated by Bousquet (1988a: 375), in MCZ [# 680].

Distribution.

This species ranges from southern New Brunswick (Webster and Bousquet 2008: 16) to southeastern South Dakota (Kirk and Balsbaugh 1975: 16), south to southwestern Oklahoma (Kondratieff et al. 2005: 172), southern Louisiana (Saint Martin Parish, LSAM), northern Mississippi (Bolivar, Marshall, and Warren Counties, Peter W. Messer pers. comm. 2009), and Delaware [see Bousquet 1988a: Fig. 37]. The records from the Bahamas (Turnbow and Thomas 2008: 12) and Horn Island, Mississippi (Richmond 1968: 233) refer to Dyschirius larochellei  Bousquet; that from Colorado (Wickham 1902: 232) is in error.

Note.

Bulirsch (2009: 19) reported that Dyschirius weyrauchi  Kult, described from one specimen collected in Peru in 1900, is a junior synonym of Dyschirius erythrocerus  . If this synonymy is correct, then the specimen from Peru is probably mislabeled.
