Abstract
    Late Campanian belemnite faunas from the Zeven Wegen and Beutenaken members of the Gulpen Formation in Liège-Limburg (NE Belgium, SE Netherlands) include five (sub)species of the genus Belemnitella d'Orbigny, 1840, viz. B. mucronata (von Schlottheim, 1813), B. woodi Christensen, 1995, B. minor I Jeletzky, 1951, B. minor II Christensen, 1995 and B. najdini Kongiel, 1962, which are described herein. CHRISTENSEN’S (1995, 1996) concept of B. minor is followed, with respect to the holotype. On the basis of these belemnite data more detailed zonal subdivisions of the Zeven Wegen and Beutenaken members are proposed. These allow correlations to be made with Late Campanian strata in Norfolk (SE England) and at Lägerdorf-Kronsmoor (NW Germany). Key taxa amongst echinoids, crinoids, asteroids and ammonites from the Zeven Wegen and Beutenaken members corroborate zonations and correlations based on belemnites.
