Bembidion lorquinii Chaudoir, 1868 

Bembidium lorquinii  Chaudoir, 1868b: 239. Type locality: «Californie» (original citation), herein restricted to Klamath River at Orleans, Humboldt County (CNC). Lectotype (♂), designated by Lindroth (1963b: 235), in MHNP. Etymology. This name was proposed for Pierre Lorquin [1797-1873], a French naturalist traveller who visited several places in the world to collect insects. He was one of the earliest to collect intensively in California where he arrived during the gold excitement in 1850. He stayed in the state until 1859 when he left for China.

Bembidion tacomae  Casey, 1924: 22. Type locality: "Wawawai [Whitman County], Washington" (original citation). Lectotype (♂), designated by Lindroth (1975: 115), in USNM [# 36797]. Synonymy established by Lindroth (1962: 9).

Distribution.

This western species is found from southwestern British Columbia, including Vancouver Island, to western Idaho, south to southwestern California [see Maddison 1993: Fig. 270]. The records from Wyoming (LeConte 1878a: 465), Colo rado (Wickham 1902: 232; Lindroth 1963b: 236), and “Montana” (Hayward 1897: 46) are probably in error.
