Together with the metals and nonmetals, the semimetals or the presently obsolete term metalloids (in Greek metallon = metal and eidos = sort) form one of the three categories of chemical elements as classified by ionization, bonding and acid-base properties.
Conversely, the term metalloid does not belong anymore to IUPAC nomenclature.

It definitely has some metalloid properties, and is in about the right place on the Table for a metalloid, but has some properties that may not be expected of a metalloid as well.
I think metalloid is a more general term, referring to materials partway between metals and nonmetals, and semimetal has a more specific meaning, generally referring to something partway between a metal and a semiconductor.

 Metal/Metalloid Element Degassing at Submarine Volcanoes
Published and new observations on other volatile metal and metalloid elements can also be interpreted as indicating significant degassing of magmatic vapors during submarine eruptions.
In this paper, a framework is constructed for predicting and assessing semi-quantitatively the potential magnitude and chemical fingerprints in the water column of metal and metalloid degassing using (1) predictions from a summary of element volatilities during mafic subaerial volcanism world-wide and (2) limited data from submarine volcanic effusives.

Monitoring metal and metalloid bioaccumulation in Hydropsyche (Trichoptera, Hydropsychidae) to evaluate metal pollution in a mining river.
We tested if whole body metal and metalloid concentrations in the caddisfly Hydropsyche (Trichoptera, Hydropsychidae), common in a mine-polluted river (Guadiamar River, SW Spain), were a useful measure to extrapolate environmental degradation.
Our results confirmed that metal and metalloid accumulation by Hydropsyche strongly correlated with metal and metalloid concentration both in the water and the sediment, and also correlated with macroinvertebrate community parameters such as total richness and abundance, as well as the richness of some taxonomic groups (EPT and OCH).
