Peryphus elegans  Stephens, 1835 [31 March]: 386 [secondary homonym of Bembidion elegans  Germar, 1824]. Type locality: "near London [United Kingdom]" (original citation). One syntype in BMNH (Netolitzky 1935: 133). Synonymy established by Netolitzky (1935: 133).

Distribution.

This European species is adventive in North America where it is known from Newfoundland (Lindroth 1955a: 61, as Bembidion rupestre  ) to western Quebec (Larochelle 1975: 53), and from Maine (Larochelle and Larivi√®re 1990a: 28). The record from "New Hampshire" (Bousquet and Larochelle 1993: 137) needs confirmation. The first inventoried specimen collected on this continent was found in Newfoundland in 1907 (Lindroth 1957c: 151).
