Eremobates vallis species group
(1989) established this group to accommodate a single species,
Eremobates vallis Muma 1989,
from the cape region of Baja California, Mexico.
He characterized males of the group as having
a basal constriction, but no
distinct notch, and a dorsal flare, but no ectodorsal tooth-like process,
on the fixed cheliceral finger (Figure 1), and a. mesoventral groove in the
fixed cheliceral finger that is broad from
its apex to its base and occupies most of finger width (Figure 2). The movable finger, he reported, lacks an anterior tooth
(Figure 1). Females, he stated, have opercula
that are broadly lobate at
their posterioectal angles, adjacent mesally for most of their length,
small, wide and flat opercular notch
that occupies a minor portion of opercular area,.
and a pair of shallow, distinct pits about midway
along their ectal margins (Figure 3).
