Atheta (Rhagocneme) subsinuata (Erichson), known from the western Palaearctic region, was discovered in the Yukon and is reported in North America for the first time as an adventive species. Amischa tersa Casey is recorded from Canada and the Yukon for the first time. Twenty-four new records of aleocharine species from the Yukon are provided in addition to species described as new to science. One hundred and fifteen digital images of external and genital structures are provided for species identification.
