Trionyxellidae Roewer, 1912 is a family proposed by Mello-Leitão (1949) by separating the 4 subfamilies of Assamiidae in which tarsi of legs III and IV have tarsal processes (pseudonychia). Subsequent authors did not adopt this family, and it was only cited a few times for the sake of completeness.


  • Assamiidae Trionyxellinae Roewer 1912c[1]: 11.
  • Tryonixellidae [misspelling]: Mello-Leitão 1949[2]: 2.
