Kraepelin 1911: 103–105, figs 4a–b (as Eremobates marginatus   n. sp.)

Type locality and specimens. Fundort: San Pedro in Kalifornien   . Mus. Gothenburg. Dimensions. ♂ Länge des Truncus 10 mm   . ♀ Länge des Truncus 12 mm. [♂ lectotype 9.45; 11.42; ♀ paralectotype 12.14; 15.58].  

Oldest Label. Eremobates marginatus Krpln   , Typus 2♂, 2♀, Mus. Gothenburg, c   . VII.67, San Pedro, Californien ( Kraepelin handwriting).  

Additional label. Eremognatha marginata (Krpl.)   . 2♂, 2♀.—Typus—Californien: S. Pedro. Roewer det. 1931— No. 8376 ( Roewer handwriting).  

Type material. Lectotype 1 ♂, paralectotypes 1 ♂, 2♀ designated here (ZMH-A0000202). Lectotype right chelicerae missing, paralectotype chelicerae dissected.

Taxonomic remarks. Both males from ZMH are dissected, a chelicera and some legs are missing. One specimen is listed as a “ syntype ” (ex Typus) at the SMF (catalog no. 6849) but this is not a complete male specimen but rather a miscroscope slide with chelicerae, palp and legs 1,4 most probably dissected from the ZMH specimen. Muma (1970: 38) confirms that the type is at the ZMH.

Current systematic position. Eremobatidae   , Hemerotrecha marginata ( Kraepelin 1911)   .
