Abstract
    The Sands of Deurne with Terebratula perforata Defrance (« Deurnian ») were observed at Rivierenhof in the immediate neighbourhood of Deurne (Antwerpen, Belgium). These glauconitic sandy deposits reached a thickness of about 1,50 m in the only section studied. A distribution table of the 56 species was made up. One monospecific genus Obliquostoma nov. gen. (Family Phylactellidae) with type species 0. dichotoma nov. sp. and one species Cellaria unicella nov. sp. are proposed herein. From ecological point of view it is remarkable that this thanatocenosis contains several typical palearctic species and also several species with subtropical and tropical distribution.
