TDiagnosiss

The genus Metolinus Cameron can be distinguished from all other genus level taxa within the tribe Xantholinini by the following characters: a) body nearly compressed, small to medium sized (3–8 mm), rarely larger (8–10 mm); b) head subquadrate or subrectangular (Fig. 2), often with microsculpture of microstriae (rarely of polygonal reticulum) and sparse medium punctures; c) frontal furrow often short or not obvious, ocular grooves distinct; d) penultimate segment of maxillary palpi and labial palpi distinctly longest, ultimate one slender and subaciculate (Fig. 3); e) pronotum with admedian and lateral row of punctures (Fig. 4); f) antesternal plate integrated (Fig. 5); g) superior line of hypomeron bending towards the prosternum before anterior angle of pronotum, but not joining with inferior line; h) tibiae with apical ctenidium, only protibiae with 2–3 rows of subapical ctenidia; i) aedeagus subelliptical, or lenticular, with symmetrical and thin parameres (Fig. 9); j) female genital segment with large sternite, devoid of supplementary sclerites (Fig. 10H).
