|Distribution||USA (SE California: Coachella Valley, Riverside County)|
Type locality: "Colorado Desert, San Diego County, California" (in errore, doubtless from Riverside County, California fide HEIFETZ 1941).
|Types||Type: lost (fide HEIFETZ 1941), collected by C.R. Orcutt.|
|Comment||Status unclear. Not listed by Collins 1997. Trépanier & Murphy (2001) found that the preferred phylogeny had two primary clades: one consisting of U. scoparia and the other placing U. inornata inside the clade containing U. notata. Uma inornata was most closely related to nearby U. notata notata, as opposed to more distant U. notata rufopunctata.|
DIAGNOSIS. Abdomen immaculate. Similar to U. n. notata in all other characters. Gular markings like those of U. n. notata; usually three internasal rows; femoral pores 18 to 28; fringe scales on fourth toe 25 to 36; no reddish brown in dorsal pattern; dorsal ocelli arranged in semilineate pattern as in U. n. notata (from HEIFETZ 1941).
