Atheta (s. str.) klagesi   Bernhauer 1909: 524. As Pseudota   Gusarov 2003a: 66; Klimaszewski et al. 2011: 118, Webster et al. 2016.

Diagnosis.

Atheta klagesi   is very similar to Atheta pseudoklagesi   , and may be distinguished from it by the following combination of characters: body slightly smaller in size and more glossy, yellowish spots on elytra more intense, more intense yellowish colouration of legs, bases of antennae and maxillary palps and overall more contrasting body colour (Fig. 52); median lobe of aedeagus has shorter tubus and a more arcuate and slightly differently shaped apex (Figs 53, 54); spermatheca (Fig. 60) is very similarly shaped in both species and females may be difficult to identify unless collected with males.

Distribution.

Bionomics.

In Newfoundland, adults were collected in pitfall traps in boreal conifer forests in July and August.
