ⓘ Theotima minutissima

With a pantropical distribution T. minutissima occurs in Panama, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand and Guam. It is especially abundant in the tropical forest leaf litter on El Yunque, Puerto Rico.

However, with more than a thousand samples collected over many years, there never was a man. We know that at least this species, and possibly others in the genus Theotima, reproduce by parthenogenesis.

His favorite habitat is the small leaf litter on the second forests with an undergrowth of shrubs or in those forests with damper and more easily decayed leaves such as mahogany. This species prefers elevations less than 800m.
