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
