Comment 
EtymologyThe specific epithet inintellectus is a latin adjective meaning “misunderstood”, because the species was observed and/or collected by different authors (including us during the first surveys), but was confused with other taxa or was suspected to be a new taxon, but remained undescribed for about ten years.
