Quote from page 394: " This recently described species is considered by Alexander and Stewart (1999) to be the most widespread species of Suwallia in North America. Suwallia starki apparently has fall emerging populations, and previously reported S. autumna (Hoppe) records for Wyoming by Baumann et al. (1977) refer to S. starki. In Colorado, S. starki has been collected from large and small streams of the Mountain and Plateau regions."

The author used scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to image the plantar surfaces of the stonefly tarsomeres and pretarsus of Suwallia starki and a number of other species.
