Grubbs, 2 males, 5 females (paratypes, WKUC)  ; Sumner Co., spring into Liggett Branch, Station Camp Creek , 6 km SE White House, 36.43708¸-86.59967, 1 March 2003, S.A. Grubbs, 3 males, 8 females (paratypes, WKUC)  ; Williamson Co., spring into Pinewood Branch, Leipers Fork , Rte. 46, 4 km W Leipers Fork , 35.89440, -87.03878, 16 March 2003, S.A.

Remarks. Adults were described and illustrated in Grubbs (2006); the larva remains undescribed. The combination of the asymmetric dorsal (Figs. 1–2, 4, 6) and ventral sclerites (Figs. 1–2), plus the inner epiproct member that is flanged and directed laterally with the flange lip enlarged apically (Figs. 2–5), aligns this species closely with S. calcarea  and S. vallicularia  .

The known distribution of S. alexandria  is along a narrow latitudinal and longitudinal band from Cumberland Plateau region in northwestern Alabama westward to northern Mississippi and northward through middle Tennessee ( Fig. 79View FIGURE 79).
