    The Recent species of Rissoina (Moerchiella), R. (Ailinzebina), R. (Apataxia) and R. (Pachyrissoina) are revised. A total of fourteen species are recognized. Two new species-group taxa are named: Rissoina (Moerchiella) kilburni sp. nov. and R. (M.) okinawensis sp. nov. Two probably new species, that belong to R. (Ailinzebina) known from only a few specimens are described but not named. Shell features of all species are redescribed or described in detail and, where available, data on the operculum, the radula and the internal anatomy is also provided. The known distribution of each species is reported.
