Oldest label. Datames tuberculatus Krpln   , ♂ Typus, EK 2839. Californien ( Krapelin handwriting).  

Additional label. Eremognatha tuberculata (Krpl.)   , 1 ♂ Typus—Californien. Roewer rv. 1931— No. 8374 ( Roewer handwriting).  

Type material. Holotype ♂ (ZMH-A0000203). Right chelicerae dissected, legs missing.

Taxonomic remarks. Muma (1970: 21) confirms the type is at the ZMH. There is a supposed “ holotype ” in SMF (catalog no.6847) but this is not the type specimen but merely body parts (legs 1+2+4) on a microscope slide that belong to the holotype specimen held at ZMH.

Current systematic position. Eremobatidae   , Eremobates tuberculatus ( Kraepelin 1899)   .
