The present study deals with the rare families, Hebridae which is not represented in the Egyptian collection, and the poorly represented Hydrometridae. This study revealed the presence of the genera, Hebrus Curtis with three species, H. jeanneli Poisson, H. montanus Kolenati, and H. pusillus (Fallén) of the family Hebridae, and Hydrometra Latreille with two species, H. aegyptia Hungerford and Evansand, and H. gracilenta Horváth of the family Hydrometridae. H. gracilenta Horváth is recorded from Egypt for the first time. Keys to species and outline drawings of representatives of each genus are presented. In addition, short diagnosis with notes on habitat and distribution are given for each species.
