Type material. Holotype ,, “ R[hode].I[sland].[According to Casey Locality Code ( Buchanan 1935; FitzGerald 1962) the black dot inside the upper part of the letter “R” stands for Casey farm, Boston Neck, N. Kingston]”, “ Sipaliella filaria Csy.  ”, “Casey bequest 1925 ”, “ TYPE USNM 39031 ” ( NMNH).

Additional material. UNITED STATES: New Jersey: Warren Co.:, 24 km NW Hackettstown, Dunnfield Creek National Area, 40 ° 58.33 'N 75 °07.49'W, 20 m (V. Gusarov), 5.iv. 1999 ( SPSU).
