I just took a look at nosetests. It provides a similar thing and lets you use a regular expression (which indeed makes a lot more sense than using wildcards) It works like this:
nosetests test/test_module -m test_name
Check http://pytest.org/latest/usage.html#usage Probably: pytest -k part_of_test_name is what You are seeking.
If You have a while - please look deeper on pytest - it's really powerful/user friendly tool.
