Metibalonius Roewer, 1915 is a genus in the family Podoctidae, subfamily Ibaloniinae. Most of the 16 species are from New Guinea.




  • Metibalonius eskaii - Hallan lists an additional species with this name by Goodnight & Goodnight, 1957:78[10], but as this source refers to Suzuki's description, it is clearly not a separate species.
