Tenellia sp. 01 is characterized by its translucent whitish body with patches of opaque white and yellow on the notum. The smooth rhinophores are translucent brown with opaque white apices. The oral tentacles are opaque white, translucent at the base. The thin cerata have scattered opaque white spots on the surface.
This species is as Cuthona sp. 33 in IPN at page 369,
it was posted on 22 September 2010 at these websites as Cuthona sp. A  Genus: Alder & Hancock, 1855, and because of Miller (2004) changed on
14 June 2011 into Trinchesia sp. 01  Genus: von Ihering, 1879.
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  Ihering, 1879
with Tenellia  A. Costa, 1866 in the Family Fionidae  J.E. Gray, 1857.
I moved on 31 December 2016 Trinchesia sp. 01  Genus: von Ihering, 1879 as #16 to the Genus Tenellia  A. Costa, 1866.
