The two species of Iassus can be separated from Batracomorpus by the 3 (rather than 5) spines at the tip of the hind femur. The relatively short and broad form of this genus is characteristic; the head is wide (equal to the width of the pronotum) and the sides of the pronotum are shorter than the eye.
In I. lanio the forewings vary in colour from green to pale brown and the vertex, pronotum and scutellum are heavily dark-mottled. The vertex is rounded and uniformly narrow from above. Compare: I. scutellaris
