Notes.

Netolitzky (1938) describes Bembidion (Peryphus) pseudolucillum   from Settsu (Japan), assigning it to the group of B. nitidulum   Marsham, 1802, s. l. (= B. deletum   Serville, 1821); again Netolitzky (1943a, 1943b) found it difficult to find a correct position for the species in his Bestimmungs-Tabellen: he mentions similarities both with species of two subgenera, Bembidionetolitzya   Strand, 1929 and Peryphus   Dejean, 1821, but preferred the latter. Jedlička (1965), in his monograph on the Bembidiini   of Eastern Asia, includes the species in the keys for subgenus Plataphus   Motschulsky, 1864 and that of the subgenus Plataphus Peryphus   . The species is listed in "incertae sedis" in the last catalogues (e.g., Marggi et al. 2003; Lorenz 2005; Marggi et al. 2017).

Conclusions.

The examination of the holotype and of the aedeagus (Fig. 9 View Figures 5–9 ) shows that the species belongs to subgenus Bembidion Plataphus   Motschulsky, 1864. The doubts regarding the systematic position of the species are due to its pronotal convexity, more evident than in other species of the subgenus. We added to all the non-type specimens the following label: Bembidion (Plataphus) pseudolucillum   Net. - det. Neri and Toledano 2020. The species length varies from 3.6 to 4.7 mm, the aedeagus from 0.75 to 0.84 mm.
