We consider metrics on the set of elliptic curves in short Weierstrass form over a finite field of characteristic greater than three. The metrics have been first found by Mishra and Gupta (2008). Vetro (2011) constructs other metrics which are independent on the choice of a generator of the multiplicative group of the underlying finite field, whereas the metrics found by Mishra and Gupta, are dependent on the choice of a generator of the multiplicative group of the underlying finite field. Hakuta (2015, 2018) constructs metrics on the set of non-supersingular elliptic curves in short Weierstrass form over a finite field of characteristic two and three, respectively. The aim of this paper is to point out that the metric found by Mishra and Gupta is in fact not a metric. We also construct new metrics which are slightly modified versions of the metric found by Mishra and Gupta.
