Bembidion (Hirmoplataphus)
status

 

Subgenus Hirmoplataphus Lindroth, 1963 

Hirmoplataphus  Lindroth, 1963b: 300. Type species: Bembidium hirmocaelum  Chaudoir, 1850 by original designation. Etymology. From the Greek eirmos (series, string) or the first two syllables of one of the included species, Bembidium hirmocaelum  , and the generic name Plataphus  [q.v.] [masculine]. Note. The name Hirmoplataphus  was first proposed by Netolitzky (1942: 46). However, because he failed to designate a type species, the name cannot be attributed from this publication (ICZN 1999: Article 13.3).

Diversity.

Northern Hemisphere, with 11 species in the Nearctic (nine species) and Palaearctic (two species: Bembidium friebi  Netolitzky and Bembidium hirmocaelum  Chaudoir) Regions.

Identification.

There is no taxonomic revision of the North American species and such study is needed. Lindroth (1963b: 301-305) covered all but three ( Bembidium alpineanum  , Bembidium avidum  , and Bembidium subaerarium  ) species described by Casey.
