Hydriomicrus  Casey, 1918: 87. Type species: Leja semistriata  Haldeman, 1843 designated by Lindroth (1963b: 305). Etymology. From the Greek hydrias (from water) and micros (small, little), possibly alluding to the small size of the adult and the habitat requirement of the species [masculine].

Five North American species, two in the east and three in the west.
