Remarks. This member of the tuberculatus  -group has a history of major taxonomic confusion with I. bakonyiensis  (now the junior synonym), but was re-described from a Richters’ 1905 slide in the Senckenberg Museum ( Germany) by Dastych (1990). Nevertheless, the literature-based, supposed, cosmopolitan distribution ( McInnes 1994), requires major taxonomic re-evaluation of all specimens attributed to I. sattleri  .
