Eremobates girardi (Putnam 1883)

Eremobates

HOLOTYPE: United States.

Original description:

SUBSEQUENT ACCOUNTS:
Brookhart and Muma 1988:

Eremobates girardi (Putnam)

Figure 99

Dalames girardi; Putnam, 1883, p. 257  (male).

esgirardi,
Kraepelin 1901 , p. 128; Roewer, 1934, p. 575; Muma, 1951, p. 65; Muma, 1970, p. 17. (male).

TYPES: Male type was supposed to be in Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia, Pa.,  but if it was deposited there it has been lost or destroyed. It may be in the city museum in Davenport, Iowa, which was the hometown of J. D. Putnam.

DIAGNOSIS: According to Putnam's 1883 description and illustrations, the type is distinguished by dark, blackish brown color; scopula on both tibiae and metatarsi of palpi; pale coloration of metatarsi and tarsi of legs; tiny, deeper than wide fondal notch; a bipartite anterior process of movable cheliceral finger (fig. 99). Female not known.

DESCRIPTION: Until the species has been recollected no description beyond that of Putnam (1883), transcribed by Muma (195 1) can be made.

DISTRIBUTION: The state of Arkansas is cited by Putnam as the collection area of the species but this is obviously in error. If or when the species is refound it will undoubtedly be in the arid southwest, probably Arizona or California.

REMARKS: This species is unique in the possession of a tibial scopula, and may represent a new species-group of Eremobates Banks. For the present it is left here, with another dark species.
