Gen. Meta C. L. Koch , 1836 [ ]
N.B.: Considered a senior synonym of Auchicybaeus Gertsch, 1933 by Lehtinen, 1967: 217; the synonymy of Metellina Chamberlin & Ivie, 1941 by Wunderlich, 1987a: 129 has not been followed by subsequent workers and is not accepted here; not a senior synonym of Metabus O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1899 (Archer, 1951a: 5). Re-synonymization of Metellina (Murphy & Roberts, 2015: ix) not sufficiently justified and is not accepted here.
