Marenzelleria is revised on the basis of material from the Arctic, North America, Europe and the Far East. Types of all species included in the genus are examined. Five species are registered. Marenzelleria neglecta sp. nov. is described from the coastal waters of the southern Baltic. Two species, M. arctia and M. wireni, occur in the Arctic, whereas M. viridis and Marenzelleria sp. A are found in coastal waters of the Atlantic. Marenzelleria neglecta occurs both in arctic and boreal estuaries. Complete description of Marenzelleria sp. A must await additional material. A generic diagnosis and a key to the species are given.
