Trusted: edited by a thematic editorIdentification For Park (1980, p.36) this species is pratically identical in morphological details to S. abyssalis. For Vervoort (1965, p.80) the two species could be synonyms.
The confusion with S. abyssalis is frequent, hence an uncertain geographical distribution.  [details]
