This monospecific genus is characterized by the flaccid and soft plant habit, oblong, elliptical or oblanceolate leaves, entire margins, and absence of a costa, and capsules lacking a peristome. Hydropogonella is often separated ecologically from Hydropogon, the latter is typically an epiphyte of inundated sites, the former is submerged in streams on rocks or exposed tree roots. This genus was previously placed in the Hydropogonaceae.


Este género monoespecífico se caracteriza por el hábito fláccido y suave de las plantas, hojas oblongas, elípticas u oblanceoladas, márgenes enteros, sin costa y cápsulas sin peristoma. Hydropogonella gymnostoma (Bruch & Schimp.) Cardot es ecológicamente separada de Hydropogon, ya que este último género es típicamente epífito en sitios inundados, mientras que la primera se encuentra inmersa en quebradas sobre rocas o raíces expuestas de árboles.
