Some combination of these should be useful to you.

  -m TESTMATCH, --match=TESTMATCH, --testmatch=TESTMATCH
                        Use this regular expression to find tests
  -e EXCLUDE, --exclude=EXCLUDE
                        Don't run tests that match regular expression
  -i INCLUDE, --include=INCLUDE
                        Also run tests that match regular expression
