Trhypochthoniellus longisetus  (Berlese, 1904)

Trhypochthonius longisetus Berlese  , 1904b, p. 27, pl. 2 fig. 44.

I have placed the present species in the genus Trhypochthoniellus  because the notogastral hairs are described as long and smooth, and the structure of the notogaster as shining. The type is, however, no more present in the Berlese Collection. Because the species was collected in hothouses in Florence, it was perhaps introduced from a tropical country. The identity of T. longisetus  remains therefore uncertain.
