The imago ♂ of Micropseclra tori n.sp. from Greenland is described and its ecology is briefly discussed. Together with M. lacustris Säwedal and M. recurvala Goetghebuer it forms the recurvala-group of the genus Micropsectra Kieffer. It is most probable that the North American species M. xantha (Roback) also belongs to this species group. A key to the imagines (♂♂) of the first three mentioned species is presented. The species are illustrated.
