Synonymy established by Lindroth (1963b: 243). Etymology. The specific name was proposed for Asa Orrin Weese [1885-1955], professor of zoology at the University of Oklahoma. Weese was mainly interested in community ecology and succession.

Distribution.

The range of this species extends from southwestern and north-central Pennsylvania (Westmoreland and Lycoming Counties, Robert L. Davidson pers. comm. 2008) to Alberta (Lindroth 1963b: 244), south to central New Mexico (Fall and Cockerell 1907: 157; Socorro County, UASM), southern Texas (Snow 1906a: 141; Casey 1918: 12, as Bembidion unicum  ; Cameron and Victoria Counties, MCZ, UASM), northeastern Louisiana (Franklin Parish, Igor M. Sokolov pers. comm. 2009), northwestern Mississippi (Bolivar County, Foster F. Purrington pers. comm. 2012), and southwestern Georgia (Fattig 1949: 16). The records from "New Hampshire," “Vermont,” “Idaho,” and "Northwest Territories" (Bousquet and Larochelle 1993: 126) are in error; that from Connecticut (Krinsky and Oliver 2001: 70) was based on misidentified specimens of Bembidion confusum  (William L. Krinsky pers. comm. 2009).
