In this paper, we discuss a relationship between the surface symmetry and the spectral asymmetry. More precisely we show that an automorphism of the Macbeath surface of genus 7, or one of the three Hurwitz surfaces of genus 14 is reducible if and only if the η-invariant of the corresponding mapping torus vanishes.
