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” (Brookhart & Cushing, 2004, p. 306).

 

         Genital Operculum: Genital opercula with short, broad arms, slightly curved medial edge with two small lobes, wings short and curved, posterior edge curved (Fig. 26)” (Brookhart & Cushing, 2004, p. 306).

 

            Chelicerae Description: Cheliceral fixed finger thin, regularly curved, movable finger with large PT, smaller triangulate AT, cleft anterior to AT, posterior IT separate from PT (Figs. 21–22)” (Brookhart & Cushing, 2004, p. 306).

 

            Ctenidia Description: Two short, thin ctenidia (Fig. 24)” (Brookhart & Cushing, 2004, p. 306).

 

Diagnosis: Separated from E. zinni and E. ascopulatus by size and shape of ctenidia, shape of female opercula and coloration” (Brookhart & Cushing, 2004, p. 306).

 

Other Information: “Eremobates corpink appears related to E. zinni. The restricted habitat in and around the Coral Pink Sand Dunes has produced other endemic species (Knisley & Hill 2001)” (Brookhart & Cushing, 2004, p. 306).
