Dorsal view of a female Bradleytriebella tuberculata, anterior to the right. Length about 0.7 mm. This species typically has two tubercles (bumps) on the carapace in the areas marked with white triangles, giving an angular appearance in dorsal view. However, in some populations these tubercles are weakly expressed or absent (as with this specimen).

External view of a female left valve of Bradleytriebella tuberculata, length 740 microns. The surface of the valves are covered in striations.

External view of a female right valve of Bradleytriebella tuberculata, length 710 microns.

Habitat: Seep next to a stream (Smith et al. 2014). Elsewhere, known from rice fields (Okubo 1990; Savatenalinton & Martens 2009).
Mode of life: Nektobenthic (swimmer).
Reproductive mode: Asexual, males unknown.
Known distribution: Jeju Island (Smith et al. 2014). Elsewhere reported from Japan (Okubo 1990), India (Hartmann 1964), Thailand (Savatenalinton & Martens 2009), and Taiwan (Yu et al. 2009).
