This species is named for Mr. Ivan Sanderson. According to Parker (1935), Sanderson was "indirectly responsible for the discovery of the species." This may have to do with Sanderson's book Animal Treasure, a report of an expedition to the jungles of then-British West Africa; he collected animals for museums and scientific institutions, and included detailed studies of their behaviors and environments in his nature writings.
