Some data concerning the species Metaxia metaxae (Delle Chiaje, 1828) and Metaxia abrupta (Watson, 1880) are given. The shells of Metaxia carinapex spec. nov. and Metaxia hapax spec. nov. are described and compared with those of the preceding two species. There is no reason to maintain the nominal species Metaxia incerta Fernandes & Rolan, 1988, in addition to M. metaxae.
