Distribution.

Being a Western-Central Siberian species, S. clavatipes   appears to be very widespread in southwestern Siberia, Russia, inhabiting Tomsk, Novosibirsk, and Kemerovo areas, Altai Province, Republic of Altai, Republic of Khakassia, and also along the Yenisei River in the Krasnoyarsk Province, central Siberia, Russia.

Remarks.

The results of this study suggest that S. clavatipes   prefers the southern slope, in spite of its highly ecological valence.
