status

 

Paranchus albipes (Fabricius, 1794)  

Carabus oblongus   Fabricius, 1792: 140 [primary homonym of Carabus oblongus   Fabricius, 1792]. Type locality: «Germania» (original citation). Syntype(s) location unknown. Note. There is one specimen under the name Carabus pallipes   Fabricius in ZMUC (Zimsen 1964: 55) but, according to Lindroth (1966: 630), the specimen is not a syntype.

Carabus albipes   Fabricius, 1794a: 468. Replacement name for Carabus oblongus   Fabricius, 1792.

Carabus pavidus   Panzer, 1799: no 7. Type locality: "Dresdae [Germany]" (original citation). Syntype(s) location unknown (possibly in ZMHB). Synonymy established with doubt by Illiger (1801: 54).

Carabus pallipes   Fabricius, 1801: 187 [primary homonym of Carabus pallipes   Fabricius, 1787]. Replacement name for Carabus oblongus   Fabricius, 1792.

Carabus circulatus   Marsham, 1802: 450. Type locality "fluvium Usk prope Crickhowell et prope Ealing [Great Britain]" (original citation). Syntype(s) location unknown. Synonymy established by Schönherr (1806: 190).

Carabus sordidus   Marsham, 1802: 457. Type locality: Great Britain (inferred from title of the book). Two syntypes in BMNH (collection Stephens). Synonymy established implicitely by Stephens (1828a: 82). Note. Stephens (1828a: 82) listed this taxon as a valid species but also said "I do not think them [the two specimens of sordidus from Marsham’s collection in his hands] sufficiently distinct from the preceding [ Anchomenus albipes   Illiger]."

Platynus clemens   LeConte, 1863c: 8. Type locality: "Nova Scotia" (original citation). Two syntypes in MCZ [# 5758]. Synonymy established by Lindroth (1954b: 138).

Distribution.

This Palaearctic species is adventive in North America where it is known from southern Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Maine (Lindroth 1966: 631). The first inventoried specimen collected on this continent was found in Newfoundland before 1835. The Canadian Museum of Nature in Gatineau holds color drawings made by Philip Henry Gosse executed prior to 1834 of insects from Newfoundland and one drawing represents this species; the plates are bound together under the title Entomologia Terrae Novae - P.H. Gosse - 1833.

Records.

CAN: NB, NF, NS (CBI) USA: ME - Adventive

Note.

Carabus ruficornis   Goeze, 1777 is often listed as a synonym of this species (e.g., Lindroth 1966: 630; Bousquet 2003c: 462). However, Goeze (1777: 663) did not propose a new species under such name since he referred to Carabus ruficornis   DeGeer, 1774 which is considered a doubtful synonym of Amara aulica   (Panzer, 1796) following Schönherr (1806: 181). Goeze (1777: 663) apparently misidentified DeGeer’s Carabus ruficornis   .
