Dwarf white isopods (Trichoniscidae tomentosa) are a dwarf type of isopod native to the Galapagos Islands. They are beige-white and very small compared to other isopods.

As part of a bioactive terrarium, T. tomentosa 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.

An interesting quirk of this species is they will "play dead" while their tub is being invaded rather than run and hide!
