It is only known from this picture of a 3 mm specimen, the total length icluding the lacking part might have been 6 - 9 mm.
This specimen was identified by Dr. Richard Willan, thanks!
This species was posted on 9 July 2011 at these websites as Trinchesia sp. K Genus: von Ihering, 1879, and changed on 15 July 2011 into
Trinchesia sp. 11 Genus: von Ihering, 1879.
For some genera, such as Trinchesia was the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I had chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
Cella et al. (2016) restricted the genus Cuthona Alder & Hancock, 1855 to the type species, C. nana (Alder & Hancock, 1842) just like Miller (2004) did, and synonymised the genera
- Catriona Winckworth, 1941,
- Phestilla Bergh, 1874,
- Cuthona Alder & Hancock, 1855 (partim), and
- Trinchesia von Ihering, 1879
with Tenellia A. Costa, 1866 in the family Fionidae J.E. Gray, 1857.
I moved on 28 December 2016 Trinchesia sp. 11 Genus: von Ihering, 1879 into the genus Tenellia A. Costa, 1866.
Korshunova et al. (2017) restricted the genus Tenellia A. Costa, 1866 to this 3 species:
-Tenellia adspersa (Nordmann, 1845)
-Tenellia chaetopterana Ekimova, Deart & Schepetov, 2017 and
-Tenellia fuscata (Gould, 1870)
and reinstated the family Trinchesiidae F. Nordsieck, 1972 with the genera
-Catriona Winckworth, 1941
-Diaphoreolis Iredale & O'Donoghue, 1923
-Phestilla Bergh, 1874
-Rubramoena Cella, Carmona, Ekimova, Chichvarkhin, Schepetov & Gosliner, 2016
-Tenellia A. Costa, 1866
-Trinchesia von Ihering, 1879 and
-Zelentia Korshunova, Martynov & Picton, 2017
and moved it again into the genus Trinchesia von Ihering, 1879.
I changed it back on 26 October 2017 into Trinchesia sp. 11 Genus: von Ihering, 1879.
