Diagnosis. Atheta ventricosa   is very similar to At. sodalis ( Erichson, 1837)   but differs in the shape of the aedeagus ( Figs. 85–88 View FIGURES 85–88 , 90–92 View FIGURES 89–92 ) (particularly the apex of the median lobe ( Figs. 85–86 View FIGURES 85–88 ) and the sclerites of the internal sac ( Figs. 90–92 View FIGURES 89–92 )), and the posterior margin of the male tergum 8 ( Fig. 81 View FIGURES 81–84 ).

Discussion. The types of At. ventricosa   , At. mollicula   , Sa. phrenetica   , At. callens   , At. franklini   and At. postulans   are similar in external characters and the shape of the aedeagus and spermatheca. All these names are considered to be synonyms.

Distribution. Atheta ventricosa   is a widespread species but its distribution is poorly documented. It is known from the United States (Alaska, Vermont, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, District of Columbia and North Carolina) and Canada (British Columbia, Ontario and New Brunswick).
