Overview

Brief Summary

Introduction

This is a large genus of over 1200 described species. Most species are found in north temperate regions, although two smaller centers of diversity exist in the southern hemisphere (the Andes mountains of South America, as well as New Zealand).

Adults are common, small predators and scavengers along bodies of water, from rapidly flowing mountain streams to lowland ponds. Several species living in more xeric conditions, including deserts.

Bembidion

Bembidion is the largest genus of beetles in the family Carabidae by number of species.[2] There have been many attempts to divide it into smaller genera, most notably by René Jeannel in 1941 and by G.G. Perrault in 1981, but none of them has been generally accepted.[2] All species are small (less than 7.5 mm) and move very fast. Most of them live close to water.[2] The genus has a biantitropical distribution.[3] In warmer regions it is substituted by closely related Tachys and other genera.[2]

This genus is divided into numerus subgenera, some of which are elevated to full genus rank by various authors; as noted above, however, no universally accepted way of splitting the genus exists yet. Bembidion subgenera include:
