Eremobates corpink ►Brookhart and Cushing 2004: 306, figs 20-26; ►Brookhart and Brookhart, 2006: 313.

HOLOTYPE: UNITED STATES: Utah, Kane County - Coral Pink Sand Dunes (3705'N, 11240'W), 2 August 1988, R.W. Bauman, 1 ♂ (holotype) (DMNH).

Original description:
Brookhart and Cushing, 2004: 306, figs 20-26:

Males: Overall coloration pale straw yellow, palpal tarsus and distal one third of metatarsus blotched brownish violet, all other appendages pale straw yellow, propeltidium with lightly blotched brownish violet except for pale median ovoid region (Fig. 20), abdomen yellow to grey. Cheliceral fixed finger thin, regularly curved, movable finger with large PT, smaller triangulate AT, cleft anterior to AT, posterior IT separate from PT (Figs. 2122). Two short, thin ctenidia (Fig. 24), palpal papillae 4082 (Fig. 23). Male holotype: Total length 21.0, propeltidium length 2.5, propeltidium width 2.9, chelicera length 4.7, chelicera width 2.4, palpus length 16.0, first leg length 12.5, fourth leg length 22.0. Ratios: A/CP 6.92, PL/PW 0.90, CL/CW 1.96, FL/FW 0.56, FFW/FW 1.80, CW/FFW 12.00. Male paratypes (2): Total length 20.020.5, propeltidium length 2.603.82, propeltidium width 3.153.90, chelicera length 3.825.45, chelicera width 2.03.9, palpus length 16.017.5, first leg length 12.014.0, fourth leg length 22.022.5. Ratios: A/CP 6.226.94, PL/PW 0.800.98, CL/CW 1.32 2.60, FFW/FW 1.191.45, FL/FW 0.560.94, CW/FFW 7.9610.70. Female allotype: Overall coloration as in male, palpus and legs yellow, propeltidium blotched violet purple in anterior edge, abdomen grey, chelicera typical, no cleft under AT of MF, posterior IT in notch of PT of MF (Fig. 25), 2 faint violet stripes on posterior dorsal edge of chelicera, genital opercula with short, broad arms, slightly curved medial edge with two small lobes, wings short and curved, posterior edge curved (Fig. 26).
Female allotype:
Total length 19.0, propeltidium length 2.5, propeltidium width 2.8, chelicera length 6.0, chelicera width 2.8, palpus length 15.0, first leg length 12.0, fourth leg length 20.0. Ratios: A/CP 5.53, CL/CW 2.15, PL/PW 0.90, GOL/GOW 0.73.

SUBSEQUENT ACCOUNTS: None

DISTRIBUTION: UNITED STATES: Utah.

PUBLISHED RECORds: UNITED STATES: Utah, Kane County - Coral Pink Sand Dunes, 11 June 2002 (S.M. Clark), 1 ♀ (allotype) (DMNS); 9 July 2002 (S.H. Clark and J.S. Robertson), 1 ♂ (paratype) (BYU). . Escalante National Monument (3725'N, 11133'W), 9 July 2000, D.J. (Craven, E. Cygen and W.N. Wendel), 1 ♂ (paratype) (BYU).

nOTES: Brookhart and Cushing (2004) stated that this species can be separated from E. zinni (to which  it appears related) and E. ascopulatus by the be and shape of the ctenidia, the shape of the female opercula, and the coloration.  They further noted that the restricted habitat in and around the Coral Pink Sand Dunes has produced other endemic species. Brookhart and Brookhart (2006) include the species in an annotated checklist of continental North American solifugae.
