mountains of Corsica.
A member of a species group that contains also S. ledanti, S. krueperi, S. villosa, S. yunnanensis and S. canadensis. Formerly treated as conspecific with S. villosa and S. canadensis; close relationship with these two supported by mitochondrial DNA analysis, which indicates a more distant relationship to S. krueperi, S. ledanti and S. yunnanensis#R. Earlier taxonomic separation of present species from S. canadensis based on studies of vocalizations, breeding biology and behaviour as well as extraordinary geographical disjunction. Monotypic.
Inland mountain ridges on Corsica (from Tartagine S to Ospedale and Mt Cagna).
