- Systematics: This species is similar to S. morrisoni in possessing marginal groups of disc pores ventrally. It differs from S. morrisoni and S. truncatispinus in lacking the larger, thick setae on the dorsum just mesad to the groups of marginal truncate setae except on head, and in possessing a medial band of microtubular ducts around the medial longitudinal rows of large spine-like setae.
- Structure: Adult female body of slide-mounted specimens, broadly oval, 1.76 mm long and 1.50 mm wide. antennae each with 3 segments, segment II with sensory pore; apical segment with several spical setae, plus a few falcate setae. Frontal lobes present. Eyes present near ventral margin. Venter: Labium unsegmented, with minute setae at tip. Legs short and not well developed, trochanter fused with femur without division; tarsal digitules knobbed; claw digitules slightly knobbed. All coxae without spinulae; hindcoxae and femora with several large, irregularly-shaped translucent pores on both sides; each trochanter with 2 sensory pores on each side; claws normal, without stout basal half, with or without dentibles. All legs with a few flagellate setae and with a sensory pore on each tarsus. Spiracles without associated disc pores. Locular disc pores with 5-10 loculi, sparse in segmental bands medially on abdominal segments VI-VIII and in small submarginal groups. Setae short and hair-like. Modified microtubular ducts present submedially. Macrotubular ducts present in a submedial band on some abdominal segments, each duct with a wide sclerotized area surrounding orifice, and with inner ductule shorter than outer ductule, ending in a circular gland. Anal lobes with a short suranal seta. Dorsum: Marginal setae truncate-conical present in 11 large groups, more or less equispaced, each on a sclerotised area of derm. Dorsal setae of two main sizes, larger setae spine-like, robust, tapering and bluntly pointed with a striated surface in 2 longitudinal rows, each with 7 spines on midline; smaller seetae much more slender but stiff, sparse in a band between marginal setae and median area with microducts. Some intermediate-sized setae present on head. Macrotubular ducts absent. Microtubular ducts present in a broad oval area medially associated with largest dorsal spines; and also in rights around bases of all marginal truncate-conical setae. Quinquelocular pores present, scattered submedially and submarginally on all segments. Anal ring with a sparse row of pores plus 6 anal ring setae. Anal lobes forming a narrow band almost encircling anal ring, probable each lobe with 2 truncate setae on inner margin and 2 long flagellate apical setae. Cauda present but very narrow; not clarly separated from anal lobe.
