Scalponotatus maturus Kelton, 1969: 19 , fig. 9 (orig. desc.); Henry and Wheeler, 1988: 448 (catalog); Schuh, 1995: 194 (catalog); Schaffner and Schwartz, 2008: 4, 6 (disc., SEM).

DIAGNOSIS: Recognized by the almost completely black coloration, including the antenna, pronotum, and the head, except for the obscurely pale lateral portion of the vertex carina; the sparse, dark simple setae; the dorsal sculpturation formed by minute punctures merging with rugosity, and the male genitalia. Similar to S. albibasis Knight, 1938 , in overall size, body conformation, and vestiture but distinguished simply by the coloration of the carina, being predominantly black with pale on the lateral margins only, as opposed to the entirely pale carina in S. albibasis . Features of the male genitalia also separate S. maturus from S. albibasis as follows: apex of right paramere truncate and serrate and long ramus of bifurcate endosomal spicule smooth in the former and right paramere with pointed apex and long, serrate ramus in the latter. When the two species are compared side by side, the lateral lobe of the right paramere is deeper in S. maturus than in S. albibasis . The mittenshaped apex of the left paramere will also serve to distinguish S. maturus from all sympatric species of Slaterocoris (e.g., S. ambrosiae , S. croceipes , and S. flavipes ).

REDESCRIPTION: Male: Body small, obovate; length 2.85–4.25, width 1.43–1.83 (pl. 1). COLORATION: Body shining black; basal carina of vertex laterally, extreme apex of femur, and base and apex of fore- and middle tibiae obscurely pale yellowish brown. Venter including abdomen shining black. VESTITURE: Sparse, short, brown, reclining simple setae, not longer than diameter of antennal segment II (fig. 3A) [scale incorrect in Schaffner and Schwartz, 2008: 6, fig. 1D]. DORSAL SCULPTURATION: Dorsum with dense, minute, obscure punctures merging with undulating reticulation (fig. 3A). GENITALIA: Pygophore: Tergal process situated on right side of aperture, strongly curved toward midline (fig. 4H). Phallotheca: Aperture open at base on right side extending apically on right side, reaching apex without opening on dorsal surface (fig. 4B). Endosomal spicule: Membrane attached to flat, recurved, basal process or keel; spicule without dorsal lobe projecting from subbasally left side; spicule broadest basally tapering toward apex; recurved distally, bifurcate apically (fig. 4A). Right paramere: J-shaped in lateral view; without expanded basal sensory lobe, distal region gradually attenuate, terminating in serrate, truncate apex (fig. 4E–G). Left paramere: C-shaped in dorsal view (fig. 4C, D); apex mittenlike, lateral lobe wide, medial lobe about one-third as wide as paramere width.

Female: Obovate, length 2.85–4.25, width 1.58–2.06 (pl. 1); costal margin more strongly arcuate, vertex wider, color and vestiture same as for male. GENITALIA: See description of genus (fig. 5A–D).

HOST PLANTS: Two genera of Asteraceae , Ambrosia and Encelia , provide the majority of host-plant records. Three widespread and common desert species, A. dumosa , E. actonii , and E. farinosa are considered breeding hosts. Eight other desert Asteraceae are also identified as hosts: A. chenopodiifolia , A. confertiflora , A. deltoidea , A. eriocentra , E. frutescens , E. virginensis , Ericameria nauseosa , and Hymenoclea salsola . The remaining plants from non-asteraceous families, known from single records only, are considered to be sitting records.

DISTRIBUTION: Apparently confined to the Sonoran Desert of southwestern Arizona, southeastern California, and Baja California and the Mojave Desert regions of Arizona, California, Nevada, and extreme southwestern Utah ( map 1 View Map 1 ).

COLLECTION SUMMARY: 897 specimens (50 % with USI numbers) from 116 collection events with dates spanning March to June.

DISCUSSION: Across its geographic range, this desert inhabiting species exhibits little variation in coloration and structure of the male genitalia. For example, compare the apex of the right paramere in specimens from the Sonoran Desert of western Arizona (fig. 4F) and western portion of the Mojave Desert in California (fig. 4G). The presumptive sister species, S. albibasis and S. maturus , have allopatric desert distributions with one another, with the former ranging from Tucson, AZ, southeast to Big Bend National Park, TX, and San Luis Potosi, Mexico, or roughly confined to the Chihuahuan Desert.
