A generic diagnosis is given for the male imago of Apometriocnemus gen. n. The genus differs from other orthoctadiines in having hairy wing and squama, curved Cu1, some long acrostichals, no tarsal pseudospurs, no sensilla chaetica or pulvilli, no anal point proper and reduced inferior volsella. It is probably related either to Metriocnemus Wulp and Thienemannia Kieffer or to Paraphaenocladius Thienemann. The type species of Apometriocnemus, A. fontinalis sp. n., is described from the male imago.
