In the syntax diagram, common with all syntax in the Stata manuals and on-line help,

    sphdist [if exp] [in range], gen(newvar) lat1(varlist) lon1(varlist)
        lat2(varlist) lon2(varlist) [ew1(varname) sn1(varname) ew2(varname)
        sn2(varname) radians radius(number) units({km | mi | naut}) thin]

Items within square brackets [ ] are optional. Thus everything after lon2(varlist) is optional. The lat1, lon1, lat2, lon2 are "non-optional options".
