Iulus austriacus Latzel, 1884 was a replacement name for Iulus fasciatus C.L. Koch, 1838 (preoccupied by Iulus fasciatus De Geer, 1778) (Latzel 1884). The type specimens of I. austriacus are thus Koch’s original specimens of his I. fasciatus (ICZN Article 72.7). The specimens that Latzel referred to as I. austriacus are not types, and it is unnecessary to invoke Article 75.6 to “de-typify” Latzel’s specimens. However, Koch’s types are inaccessible.
