Gen. Metellina Chamberlin & Ivie, 1941 [urn:lsid:amnh.org:spidergen:01389]

M. Chamberlin & Ivie, 1941b: 14, type Meta curtisi (McCook, 1894); N.B.: Wunderlich's synonymy of this group with Meta C. L. Koch, 1836 has not been followed by subsequent workers.

In synonymy:
M. antrorum (Simon, 1907, T from Meta) = M. segmentata (Clerck, 1757) (Loksa, 1972: 69, sub Meta).
M. merianae celata (Blackwall, 1841) = M. merianae (Scopoli, 1763) (Wunderlich, 2011: 209, sub Meta, after Wiehle, 1931: 126).
M. peckhami (McCook, 1894, T from Araneus) = M. curtisi (McCook, 1894) (Levi, 1980a: 35, contra Levi & Field, 1954: 466).
M. reticulata (Linnaeus, 1758, T from Meta) = M. segmentata (Clerck, 1757) (Clerckian names validated by ICZN Direction 104).
