Synopsis of the genus Bembidion Latreille in New Zealand (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Bembidiini)

  • The genus Bembidion Latreille (Carabidae: Bembidiini) is reviewed for New Zealand. Thirty-six species-group taxa are recognized. Seven species are described as new: Bembidion (Zecillenus) karikari new species, Bembidion (Zecillenus) puponga new species, Bembidion (Zecillenus) tepaki new species, Bembidion (Zecillenus) waimarama new species, Bembidion (Zemetallina) bullerense new species, Bembidion (Zemetallina) mangamuka new species, Bembidion (Zemetallina) waiho new species. The taxonomic status of two species-group taxa is changed (valid names listed after equal sign): Bembidion (Zeactedium) orbiferum giachinoi Toledano, 2005 = Bembidion (Zeactedium) giachinoi Toledano, 2005; Bembidion (Zeperyphodes) nesophilum Broun, 1886 (previously synonymized with Bembidion (Zeperyphodes) callipeplum Bates, 1878) is resurrected from synonymy. A new synonymy is established (valid name listed after equal sign): Bembidion (Ananotaphus) rotundicolle eustictum Bates, 1878 = Bembidion (Ananotaphus) rotundicolle Bates, 1874. A concise review of the taxonomy of all taxa is provided. Descriptions, identifi cation keys, illustrations of male genitalia, habitus photos, as well a s distributional data and maps are given.
