Genus Sericoda Kirby, 1837 

Sericoda  Kirby, 1837: 14. Type species: Sericoda bembidioides  Kirby, 1837 by monotypy. Etymology. From the Greek sericos (silk), alluding to the silky appearance of adults ("black underneath, above black-bronze rather silky") of Sericoda bembidioides  in the eyes of Kirby [feminine].

Rhytiderus  Chaudoir, 1844: 470. Type species: Dromius decempunctatus  Reiche, 1842 (= Sericoda bembidioides  Kirby, 1837) by original designation. Etymology (original). From the Greek rhytis (wrinkle) and dere (neck, by extension pronotum), alluding to the irregular, granulate, transversely strigulate microsculpture on the pronotum, which Chaudoir believed were wrinkles (" thorax ... disco toto transverse rugis irregularibus tecto "), of the adult [masculine].

Rhytidoderus  Agassiz, 1846: 327. Unjustified emendation of Rhytiderus  Chaudoir, 1844.

Agonodromius  Reitter, 1908: 139 (as Agnonodromius  ), 239 (index). Type species: Carabus quadripunctatus  DeGeer, 1774 designated by Jeannel (1942: 873). Synonymy established by Gray and Hatch (1941: 19). Etymology. From the generic names Agonum  [q.v.] and Dromius  [q.v.], alluding to the resemblance of these Agonum  species to those of Dromius  (" Dromius-aehnich  ") [masculine].

Diversity.

Eight species in North America (four species, only one of them endemic), Middle America (two species, no endemism), the West Indies (one endemic Cuban species), South America (one species, no endemism), Asia (four species, three of them endemic), and Europe (two species, no endemism).

Identification.

Liebherr (1991b) revised the species. One species, Sericoda balli  Schmidt, was subsequently describedfrom Pakistan.
