Bembidion (Peryphanes) fraxator Menetries , 1832
status

 

Bembidion (Peryphanes) fraxator Menetries, 1832  

Bembidion (Peryphanes) lucidum   (Faldermann, 1836)

Notes.

Bembidion lucidum   Faldermann, 1836 was retained, after a study of the type specimen by Netolitzky (1910) as being very close to B. dalmatinum   Dejean, 1831. Later Netolitzky (1914b) synonymized Bembidion lucidum   with Bembidion dalmatinum   Bembidion fraxator   Ménétriés, 1832 (currently Bembidion fraxator   is considered a valid species). Marggi et al. (2003: 271) listed B. lucidum   as a synonym of B. dimidiatum   Ménétriés, 1832 which was moved to "incertae sedis"; while the moving of B. dimidiatum   was mentioned (p. 21) nothing was stated about B. lucidum   . This situation remains also in Marggi et al. (2017).

After having carefully analyzed the literature regarding these taxa (e.g., Ménétriés 1832; Faldermann 1836; Schaum 1861; Netolitzky 1910, 1914b; Kryzhanovskij et al. 1995; Belousov and Sokolov 1996), we confirm that B. lucidum   Faldermann is a synonym of B. fraxator   Ménétriés and not of B. dimidiatum   Ménétriés, which, moreover, belongs to another subgenus (see above).
