Geographic Location: AK: Brooks Range ( Behan 1978a); YT: Ogilvie Mtns ( Behan-Pelletier 1997b); NT:

Yellowknife ( Hammer 1952a); peatlands ( Behan-Pelletier & Bissett 1994); AB: peatlands ( Behan-Pelletier & Bissett 1994); Wagner Natural Area, 8km W Edmonton, 53°34’N, 113°47’W ( Finnamore 1994); ABMIGoogleMaps  Sites; Moose Pasture Research Site; Lake Wabamun ( Walter et al. 2014); NB: peatlands ( Behan-Pelletier & Bissett 1994); NS: Sable Is.

Habitats: Peatlands; moss along lake margins.

Distribution: Nearctic.

Remarks: Weigmann (1999) considered Trhypochthoniellus longisetus  to be polymorphic in Europe and proposed T. trichosus (Schweizer)  and T. setosus Willmann  as junior synonyms. Subías (2004) recombined T. setosus canadensis  as T. longisetus canadensis  . We retain T. setosus canadensis  herein as North American specimens have not been the subject of morphometric analysis.

Genus Trhypochthonius Berlese, 1904
