We discuss the importance of dielectronic satellites with transitions 1s 22l − 1s2l3p on the long‐wavelength side of He‐like ion lines 1s 2 − 1snp (n > 2). Their intensity ratios with the He‐like ion lines have an inverse temperature dependence, making them useful as diagnostics. This is examined in the case of Si and Fe satellites.
