Diagnosis. See Klimaszewski & Winchester (2002). This species is unusual in lacking a sclerotized spermatheca.

Discussion. The types of H. nitens   , At. insolens   , At. apposita   and Dim. resplendens   are similar in external characters, in the shape of the aedeagus (in male specimens) and in lacking a sclerotized spermatheca (in female specimens).

Distribution. Atheta nitens   is known from Alaska, British Columbia, Washington and Oregon.
