Abstract

Several partial skeletons from the marine Maastrichtian deposits of Belgium and the Netherlands allow to recognize four species of Dercetidae, two of which are new: Dercetis triqueter, Ophidercetis italiensis, Cyranichthys jagti sp. nov. and Apuliadercetis indeherbergei sp. nov. This newly studied material greatly enlarges the stratigraphic and paleogeographic ranges of the four concerned dercetid genera.
