Material examined. Holotype male. AUSTRALIA: Western Australia: Bungaroo, 35.4 km SE. of Pannawonica , 21°56’37”S, 116°26’26”E, 15 April 2011, troglofauna trap, J. Alexander, S. Werner ( WAM T114968 ). GoogleMaps  

Paratypes. AUSTRALIA: Western Australia: 1 ♀, Bungaroo, 34.8 km SE. of Pannawonica , 2156’07”S, 11626’54”E, 15 April 2011, troglofauna trap, J. Alexander, and S. Werner ( WAM T114972 )   ; 1 ♂, Bungaroo, 35.3 km SE. of Pannawonica , 21°56’37”S, 116°26’39”E, 15 April 2011, troglofauna trap, J. Alexander, S. Werner ( WAM T114969 ) GoogleMaps   .

Other material. AUSTRALIA: Western Australia: See Abrams and Harvey (2015).

Diagnosis. The shape of the male flagellum of Draculoides eremius   most closely resembles D. affinis   and D. gnophicola   , particularly in the distally rounded end of the flagellum, which is tapering in most other similar described Draculoides   species ( D. anachoretus   , D. cochranus   , D. kryptus   , D. mckechnieorum   , D. noctigrassator   and D. warramboo   ). Draculoides eremius   differs from D. bythius   and D. gnophicola   in the distal placement of dm4 on the margin of the flagellum (dm4 is sub-distal and anterior to dl 3 in D. affinis   and slightly sub-distal in and D. gnophicola   ). Females of this species differ from all other females by the rectangular-shaped backward folding genital gonopod. Draculoides eremius   can be diagnosed from all other Draculoides   species that were sequenced at COI by the 50bp mini-barcode shown in Figure 3 View FIGURE 3 . Draculoides eremius   can be diagnosed from all other Draculoides   species that were sequenced at 12S ( Fig. 5 View FIGURE 5 ) except for D. piscivultus   . Draculoides eremius   can be diagnosed from all other Draculoides   species that were sequenced at ITS2 ( Fig. 7 View FIGURE 7 ) except for D. anachoretus   , D. bythius   , D. gnophicola   , D. kryptus   , D. mckechnieorum   , D. warramboo   , D. immortalis   , D. belalugosii   , D. christopherleei   , D. piscivultus   and D. akashae   , which are not distinguishable using the ITS2 mini-barcode.

Description. See Abrams and Harvey (2015).

Remarks. Draculoides eremius   has only been found in the Bungaroo valley, situated south-east of Pannawonica in the Pilbara region of Western Australia ( Fig. 1E View FIGURE 1 ).
