Actenonyx is a genus of beetles in the family Carabidae. At present only species in this genus is Actenonyx bembidioides.[1] However it has been suggested that a taxonomic revision of this genus is needed as there are two species that await description.[2] This genus and species was first described by Adam White[3] and is endemic to New Zealand.[4]
