The buccinulid genus Savatieria, endemic to the Magellanic region, is revised. New descriptions of shell, opercular and radular characters are provided for all valid taxa. Type material of all species ever included in Savatieria are illustrated, most of them for the first time. Five of those species are considered valid, but only three belong to the genus Savatieria: S. frigida Rochebrune & Mabille, 1885, S. coppingeri (Smith, 1881) and S. areolata Strebel, 1905. Savatieria bertrandi Melvill & Standen, 1914 is considered a probable synonym of S. areolata. ´Savatieria´ meridionalis (Smith, 1881) and ´S.´ chordata Castellanos, Rolán & Bartolotta, 1987 are excluded from Savatieria based on their radular, opercular and/or shell characters. The subgenus Lisosavatieria Castellanos & Fernández, 1975 is considered a synonym of Savatieria.
