Glenognatha emertoni Simon, 1887: 194   (male syntypes from Arizona, United States of America, deposited in MNHN, examined); Simon 1894: 717, figs. 790–791; Banks 1913: 180, pl. 2, fig. 22; Levi 1980: 66, figs. 255–271; Cabra-García et al. 2014: 1029, figs. 1F, 2D, 2G, 4B, 5F–G, 7E, 9C–D; World Spider Catalog 2015.

Diagnosis. Males of G. emertoni   are distinguished from all other congeneric species by the presence of a mesally oriented projection located in the distal margin of the cheliceral basal segment ( Fig. 127 A View FIGURE 127 ). Females resemble those of G. minuta   in having an anterior cheliceral bulge ( Fig. 127F View FIGURE 127 ), but differ by the reduced size of the spermathecae in relation with the uterus externus ( Figs. 129 A –C View FIGURE 129 ) and the apical position of the cheliceral bulge ( Fig. 127F View FIGURE 127 ).
