Brachinus mexicanus Dejean, 1831  

Brachinus mexicanus   Dejean, 1831: 428. Type locality: «Mexique» (original citation), restricted to "Baja California" by Erwin (1970a: 104), herein to Cataviña (see Erwin 1970a: 106). Lectotype (♂), designated by Erwin (1970a: 104), in MHNP.

Brachinus convexus   Chaudoir, 1837a: 7. Type locality: «Mexique» (original citation). Lectotype (♀), designated by Erwin (1970a: 104), in MHNP. Synonymy established by Chaudoir (1876a: 73), confirmed by Erwin (1970a: 104).

Brachynus le contei   Motschulsky, 1859a: 139 [primary homonym of Brachinus lecontei   LeConte, 1844]. Type locality: California (inferred from title of the paper). Two syntypes in ZMMU (Erwin 1965: 10). Synonymy established by Lindroth (1969a: 1099) based on Erwin’s (1969c) thesis.

Brachinus fidelis   LeConte, 1863a: 524. Type locality: "Kern [Kern County, California]" (lectotype label). Lectotype (♀), designated by Erwin (1970a: 104), in MCZ [# 5852]. Synonymy established, under the name Brachinus lecontei   Motschulsky, by Erwin (1965: 9). Note. LeConte (1863a: 524) reported this species from "New Mexico, Arizona and Lower California" suggesting that the specimen selected as lectotype may not be a syntype.

Distribution.

This species occurs from eastern Washington to northern Illinois, south to Guatemala and the southern part of the Baja California Peninsula [see Erwin 1970a: Fig. 252].
