We report and describe the first species of Atheroides Haliday presumed to be native to North America,
collected at the Valles Caldera National Preserve, New Mexico, USA. We hypothesize its placement
among the Siphini based on morphological, phylogenetic analysis and extend the distribution of the genus
to the Holoarctic. We expand the key of the known Atheroides to include the new species and discuss the
current hypotheses of the geographic distribution of the type species, Atheroides serrulatus Haliday.
