Taxonomy Verrill described S. tenuis consecutively, after S. viridis, from the same place and habitat. He did not say why he considered S. tenuis was a different species, and it is not clear from the descriptions. Foster (1971: 37) does not indicate her synonymy was new, but does not state who first synonymised the two. [details]
