Remarks. Tinytrella pusilla   is a small, brown species from the North and South Islands of New Zealand, recognised by Forster (1959) as different to all other Textricellini   in New Zealand. It appears to be the most basal textricellin taxon known, sister to all other described species ( Fig. 4 View Figure 4 ). Nothing is known of its biology or habits.
