Metalectra Hübner. The genus Metalectra was included in the Eublemminae, tribe Eublemmini by Fibiger and Lafontaine (2005) on the basis of the membranous cucullus, a character shared with the Scolecocampini and Boletobiini. The larva is a wart-covered fungus feeder so we associate the genus with the Scolecocampini-Boletobiini group and then with the tribe Boletobiini because the DNA barcode consistently associates Metalectra with Mycterophora Hulst.
