Remarks. Adults were described and illustrated in Wu (1923) and redescribed in Grubbs (2006). In the latter (his figs. 1–27), the epiproct and outer paraproct lobe of nine populations from seven states were illustrated with SEM and depicted little morphological variability with either structure. The SEM images shown herein from Pennsylvania ( Fig. 23View FIGURES 17–24) and Kentucky ( Fig. 24View FIGURES 17–24) likewise depicts little variability. The outer paraproct lobe was also illustrated in Needham & Claassen (1925; their plate 38, fig. 3) and Hitchcock (1974, his fig. 137). The combination of the asymmetric dorsal ( Figs. 17–19, 22View FIGURES 17–24) and ventral sclerites ( Figs. 17–18View FIGURES 17–24), plus the inner epiproct member that is flanged and directed laterally, with the flange lip enlarged apically ( Figs. 18–21View FIGURES 17–24), aligns this species closely with S. alexandria  and S. calcarea  . The larva of S. vallicularia  remains the only eastern species where the immature stage has been described in full (see Stewart & Stark 2002 and all references therein).

Soyedina vallicularia  is the most widespread among the eastern Nearctic species, including Atlantic Canada, Appalachian Mountains, Great Lakes region, and Ohio River and upper Mississippi River basins ( Fig. 79View FIGURE 79).
