The single record of this species from the cave was a juvenile and was not identifiable beyond the generic level. The animal was found at an invertebrate station in the Rotunda Room Attic. There are about 18 Nearctic species of Sinella, including some cavernicolous forms (Christiansen and Bellinger 1998). Additional sampling and study will be required to determine the status of this species in the cave.
