is still known only from the types. Reported measurements are HW 0.84, HL 0.93, SL 0.53. If the illustration in Snelling (1968) is accurate, it has a very unusual head shape, with very reduced lateral angles (CI 90, one of the lowest values for New World Eurhopalothrix
). Specialized setae on the face are highly reduced, to a tight square of 4 spatulate setae on the posteromedian vertex (this tight square also found on E. sepultura
and E. speciosa
, but these with additional setae elsewhere). It is also similar to E. floridana
, which has even more reduced facial setae (2 on medial vertex margin) and a somewhat similar head shape.
