Two new metastable states, 4Φg and 4Ig, of the He-2 anion are characterized using the numerical Hartree-Fock method. It is determined that such metastable quartet states are formed when the He+2 core attracts two electrons, which are placed into bonding orbitals, whose angular momentum quantum number differs by one.
