The species is conspecific with the Afro-American I. tenerifolium. The global distribution of I. tenerifolium is reviewed and mapped and the locality on Gough Island represents its southernmost known occurrence. In addition, the species is known from several collections from Tristan da Cunha and Nightingale Island. The distribution patterns of the South Atlantic mosses are briefly discussed.
