Atomaria atrata Reitter --det. C. Johnson

 
Atomaria wollastoni Sharp ?
See my comments here. This doesn't look like Atomaria atrata Reitter to me, but rather like Atomaria wollastoni Sharp. What was the basis of this determination?

 
i dunno... i ID'd it as wollastoni, as you can see,...
...and asked Colin to check

Moved tenatively; keys out snugly
Moved from Atomaria.

 
Atomaria wollastoni
Thanks =v=. I don't see this species on the UNH site, so I'll probably save it for Don, unless you know someone else that it should go to.

 
it's a eurospecies now widespread in Atlantic Canada
