Metacrias is a genus of moths in the family Erebidae. All species are endemic to New Zealand.[1][2]

Metacrias was first described by Edward Meyrick in a paper in the journal Proceedings of the Linnean Society of New South Wales published in 1887.[3][4] It has been postulated that this genus may be cogeneric with Phaos, an Australian genus.[5]
