Costa Rican Dwarf Purple Isopods (Trichoniscidae sp.) are a dwarf, parthenogenic type of isopod native to Costa Rica. They are purple-brown and very small.

As part of a bioactive terrarium, Trichoniscidae sp. contributes by breaking down food waste, feces, and rotting foliage. These tiny isopods can make great CUC in a tropical vivarium where larger isopods get hunted to extinction by the primary resident, but they can also make good feeders for particularly small exotic pets.
