Abstract
    From the Kunrade limestone facies and from the Emael, Nekum and Meerssen Members of the Maastricht Formation (late Maastrichtian) in the type area of the Maastrichtian Stage, a new genus and species of ophiuroid, Felderophiura vanderhami n. gen., n. sp., is described and illustrated. In addition to numerous disarticulated ossicles of disc and arms some twenty more or less complete specimens and several dozens of arm fragments are available for study; occurrences like these have recently proved to be comparatively common in the Maastrichtian type area. A brief discussion of ophiuroid remains collected from Campanian and Maastrichtian strata in this area is added.
