Bembidion semenoviDavid R. Maddison
Adult External Characteristics
As this species is known from only one specimen, its characteristics are not well understood. The single specimen is large (standardized body length = 6.1 mm), convex, and shiny. The third elytral interval is narrow, with small silver spots. The appendages are pale rufous or rufotestaceous. The pronotum lacks a long basilateral carina, and is without midlateral seta. The third protarsomere of this male has an unusual lateral projection.

Appendages paler than B. argenteolum, with antennomere 1 entirely rufotestaceous. Protarsomere 3 of male with lateral projection.
