Subgenus Ocydromus Clairville, 1806 

Ocydromus  Clairville, 1806: 20. Type species: Carabus modestus  Fabricius, 1801 designated by Jeannel (1941b: 481). Etymology. From the Greek ocys (swift, quick) and dromos (running), probably alluding to the fast movement of the adults in the field [masculine].

Protoperyphus  Alluaud, 1926: 11, 12. Type species: Bembidion derelictum  Alluaud, 1926 by monotypy. Etymology. From the Greek protos (first) and the generic name Peryphus  [q.v.] [masculine].

Synechoperyphus  Netolitzky, 1942: 48. Type species: Bembidium transsylvanicum  Bielz, 1852 by original designation. Synonymy established by Schuler (1962: 2), confirmed by Belousov (in Kryzhanovskij et al. 1995: 87). Etymology. From the Greek synechos (continuous) and the generic name Peryphus  [q.v.] [masculine].
