Muma (1989) later, In a key to species groups of Eremobates based on females, credited females of the group as having opercula that are widely separated posteriorly with a pair of deep, distinct pits about midway along ectal margins, and a posteriomesal notch that is wide, long (occupying at least a third of opercular area), and sinuate or weakly lobate mesally (Figure 2).
