The key to the species of Slaterocoris utilizes coloration, dorsal vestiture, and male genitalia to separate species. Because the coloration is predominantly black, the placement of pale regions of the head (pls. 1, 2), antennal segments I and II and legs (figs. 12, 13) are significant; allowance is made for the generally more extensive pale coloration in the female. Differences in the dorsal vestiture (pl. 4) hold for both sexes and are best viewed on the corium nearest the clavus in skewed lateral view. Male genitalic diversity, accompanied by illustrations of intraspecific variation, focuses on the two lobes of the endosomal spicule. Attention is given to the ramification and serration of the distal regions. In the right paramere the number and placement of the ventral spines are significant, whereas the length and distal thickness of the left paramere only distinguishes the breviatus species group. As with many other plant bug genera, keys to the included species work best for males; females are sometimes only identifiable when associated with males.
