SUBSEQUENT ACCOUNTS:
Brookhart and Cushing, 2004: 305-306, figs 27, 39, 50, 58;

Males: Appendages dusky yellow with dusky violet brown on tarsus and distal end of metatarsus of palp, propeltidium dusky yellow with light violet tinges on anterior and anterio-lateral edges (Fig. 50). Male cheliceral FF regularly curved, MF with small triangulate AT with cleft, posterior IT separate from PT; fondal notch longer than wide (Fig. 27). Ctenidia 4 short, flat (Fig. 39), 4080 palpal papillae.
Male holotype:
Total length 21.0, chelicera length 5.7, chelicera width 2.5, propeltidium length 3.0, propeltidium width 6.4, palpus length 19.0, first leg length 15.0, fourth leg length 23.0. Ratios: A/CP 6.55, CL/CW 2.28, PL/PW 0.47, FL/FW 1.17, FFW/FW 1.33, CW/FFW 0.80. Male measurements (1): Total length 14.0, propeltidium length 3.12, propeltidium width 6.4, chelicera length 6.24, chelicera width 3.0, palpus length 12.0, first leg length 10.0, fourth leg length 16.0. Ratios: A/CP 4.10, CL/CW 2.08, PL/PW 0.49, FL/FW 0.90, FFW/FW 1.38, CW/FFW 1.10.
Females:
Same coloration as males, MF with posterior IT in the notch of PT, AT with no cleft, genital opercula with long, thin arms, a curved medial edge ending in a point, short offset wings and a curved posterior surface (Fig. 58). Female allotype: Total length 23.0, propeltidium length 3.9, propeltidium width 7.0, chelicera length 4.8, chelicera width 2.5, palpus length 15.0, first leg length 13.0, fourth leg length 21.0. Ratios: A/CP 4.80, CL/CW 2.52, PL/PW O.56, GOL/GOW 0.68.

DISTRIBUTION: 'U.S.A. (*Arizona, *Colorado, *New Mexico, *Utah).

PUBLISHED RECORds: UNITED STATES: Nevada: Clark County - Las Vegas (3610'N, 11508'W), May through August 1944 (Donald J. Zinn), (allotype), ♂ (AMNH). February through June 1945 (collector?), ♀ (paratype) (AMNH). Utah: Washington County - Saint George (3706'N, 11335'W), no date, no collector , ♂ (BYU).

nOTES:

Diagnosis.Eremobates zinni is closely related to E. socal new species. It can be separated by the shape of the male chelicera, coloration, and shape of female genital opercula.

Remarks.Eremobates zinni and E. ascopulatus are sympatric at the Nevada Test Site. Eremobates zinni appears to be related to both E. socal new species and E. corpink new species.

 

Brookhart and Brookhart (2006) included the species in an annotated checklist of continental North American Solifugae.
