DIAGNOSIS: Distinguished among members of the apache group by the sparse, moderately long, suberect, pale or silvery vestiture (pl. 4B); mostly black femora except for the conspicuous pale apical regions, pale yellow tibiae, and dark tarsomeres (fig. 12); and the male genitalia with the basal lobe of the right paramere usually entire (fig. 17A, B, D–F, H, I), and the endosomal spicule with the distal portion of the ventral lobe narrow, usually short and with weak marginal serration (fig. 18B, C). Slaterocoris apache is separated from S. atratus and S. pilosus by sparse vestiture (pl. 4B), the latter species have dense vestiture (pl. 4K). The black femora with discretely pale apices (fig. 12) and dorsum with pale or silvery vestiture (pl. 4B) will separate S. apache from S. croceipes with mostly orange-red femora (fig. 12) and dorsum with dark vestiture (fig.12). The pale yellow tibiae in S. apache distinguish it from S. rubrofemoratus with black tibiae and S. tibialis with dusky orange–pale brown tibiae (fig. 12); the latter species also have dark vestiture.

REDESCRIPTION: Male: Moderately large, elongate; length 3.53–5.50, width 1.60–2.01 (pl. 1). COLORATION: Antennal segment I black, sometimes dorsal surface pale to limited extent, antennal segment II black; legs black, femur pale apically, tibia pale yellow (fig. 12); hemelytral membrane pale (pl. 1) to infuscate. VESTITURE: Moderately sparse, suberect to reclining; moderately long, silvery simple setae (pl. 4B). STRUCTURE: Costal margins subparallel; frons smooth; antennal segment II longer than foretibia. GENITALIA: Tergal process: Short, with one somewhat truncate point. Endosomal spicule: Distal portion of ventral lobe narrow, marginal serration sparse to moderately dense, length short to moderately long; dorsal lobe parallel sided, usually wide distally, terminating with apical serration of variable number and size; lateral edge usually without conspicuous medial and basal spine (fig. 18A–E). Right paramere: Apical spines of variable number, basal lobe with apex entire or variably serrate (fig. 17A–I).

Female: Obovate; length 3.43–4.60, width 1.80–2.10 (pl. 1). COLORATION: Pale regions on appendages somewhat more expansive; antennal segment I and II usually pale. VESTITURE: Setae more recurved, less erect and somewhat shorter than in the male; setal structure most obvious in anterolateral view. STRUCTURE: Costal margin arcuate. GENITALIA: As in species group except: Ventral labiate plate: Apex entire or cleft. Interramal lobe: Dorsomedial margin either not produced as lobe or with narrow lobe.

HOSTS: Most frequently collected on Ericameria nauseosa ( Asteraceae ), including in Colorado, ssp. consimilis and ssp. nauseosa var. speciosa . A large number of specimens were recorded from unspecified species of Chrysothamnus . Because no captures were noted from C. viscidiflorus , it is probable that these records can be attributed to Ericameria , presumably E. nauseosa . A few specimens were found on other Asteraceae , Artemisia sp. and Verbesina encelioides . Non-asteraceous plants were noted for three specimens, but these are considered sitting records.

DISTRIBUTION: Usually higher elevations of the Central Rocky Mountains from Wyoming south to New Mexico and from apparently isolated populations in mountain ranges of Nevada and Arizona ( map 3 View Map 3 ).

COLLECTION SUMMARY: 1010 specimens (42 % with USI numbers) from 117 collection events with the majority of records from July and August.

DISCUSSION: Variation in the right paramere (cf. fig. 17A–I) occurs in the number and conformation of the apical spines and apical serration of the basal lobe. Such variable structure was noted across the distribution (Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah) and from a single collection event at Lehman Caves, Nevada (cf. fig. 17H, I). Variable morphology is also noted in the dorsal and ventral lobes of the endosomal spicule (fig. 18A–E) with individuals from a single a collection event near Pueblo, Colorado (fig. 18D, E) as variable as specimens across the entire distribution of the species (Arizona, Colorado, and Utah).

Kelton (1968) distinguished S. apache from S. croceipes based on the vestiture and leg coloration and stated that the male genitalia of both species are similar. After an examination of the male genitalia from across the range of both species, trends in the considerable amount of variation observed indicate that there are at least two features that aid in species recognition. The right paramere of S. croceipes usually has the apex of the basal lobe serrate and the ventral lobe of the endosomal spicule is somewhat expanded and moderately serrate on the distal portion. As mentioned in the diagnosis, the basal lobe of the right paramere is usually entire in S. apache and the distal portion of the ventral lobe in the endosomal spicule is narrow, usually short, and with weak marginal serration.

There appears to be considerable overlap in the distribution of S. apache and S. croceipes in eastern Nevada, Utah, and Colorado (cf. map 3 View Map 3 ). However, if the data are critically examined, S. apache is found at higher elevations, whereas S. croceipes occurs at lower elevations. There are two localities, Salina, Utah (multiple collection events), and Lehman Caves, Nevada (single collection event), where the species are sympatric. At these sites Slaterocoris apache (00070122 and 00119428, 00119430–00119433) and S. croceipes (00070117 and 00119429) are separated on leg color and vestiture, but the endosomal spicule and right paramere morphology are not particularly indicative of one or the other species. When measurements and ratios (cf. table 3) for the two species are compared from across the total distribution of both species considerable overlap is observed. However, on average in Colorado, Nevada, and Utah, where both species occur, the overall body length of S. apache is greater (4.33, 3.53–5.50) than in S. croceipes (3.70, 3.15–4.10).

On the basis of single specimens Knight (1970) named the species from White Valley , Utah, S. bifidus and that from near Ridgeway, Colorado, S. burkei . The distinguishing characteristics of bifidus listed by Knight (1970) are the black antennae and legs, except for the pale apices of the femora and tibiae; the sparse, suberect pale vestiture; the bifurcate basal lobe of the right paramere; and the pale hemelytral membrane with dark veins. Knight (1970) separated S. burkei from congeners by the black general coloration, except for the yellow antennal segment I, apices of the femora and tibiae; the sparse, suberect, pale vestiture; and the bifurcate apex of the right paramere. The diagnostic features promoted by Knight for these nominal species fall within the variation observed in S. apache : the antennal segment I is sometimes pale, the apices of the femora and tibiae are always pale or yellow; the hemelytral membrane ranges from pale to infuscate; the dorsal vestiture is sparse, suberect, moderately long, and pale; the apex of the basal lobe is sometimes bifurcate and the number of apical spines is variable (one to four). The type localities of both nominal species are within the range of S. apache . The body measurements given by Knight (1970) for the nominal species are also within the range given in table 3 for S. apache , with the antennal segment lengths of bifidus slightly less than those measured herein. Therefore, because bifidus and burkei have all the features of S. apache , both are considered to be junior synonyms of the latter.
