Jamaica, Dominica = Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
Has been considered to be related to S. graciae, S. adelaidae, S. subita and S. delicata, but one molecular phylogeny recovered evidence of a sister relationship with S. coronata#R. Recent work has suggested that the three generally recognized races are so weakly differentiated, with variation primarily clinal, that they should be combined as one#R, especially as there is also no genetic support for any of them#R; consequently albilora (described from Belize, but breeds W of Appalachian Mts) and stoddardi (Walton County, Florida), as well as proposed race axantha (from Ohio), are all considered inseparable. Hybridization with S. americana recorded. Monotypic.
EC USA from E Iowa, SE Kansas and C Texas E to Pennsylvania and S to C Florida; migrates to Central America (mainly E Mexico S to Nicaragua, casually Costa Rica), as well as SE USA (South Carolina S to Florida) and Caribbean (mainly Bahamas and Greater Antilles).
