Looks like a simple typo. NCBI has this as "Aenigma iridis" http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Taxonomy/Browser/wwwtax.cgi?mode=Info&id=178192 based on a single sequence submitted by http://dx.doi.org/10.1673/031.008.6301 The original publication (see http://biostor.org/reference/71437) is an OCR nightmare as the genus name is written "ÆNIGMA". Nice example of NCBI error being propagated, and difficulty in locating original description due to OCR errors.
