Abstract
    The bivalve species found in the Boom Formation (Rupelian, Early Oligocene) in Belgium are taxonomically revised. The distribution of the species over the Members and beds of this Formation is detailed. Of the 39 species occurring in the Boom Formation, 11 are recorded for the first time in Belgium, four of which are new to science: Semierycina (Semierycina) kruibekensis nov. sp., Scacchia (Scacchia) dufraingi nov. sp., Thracia (Thracia) vanremoorteli nov. sp. and Cardiomya (sensu lato) annamariae nov. sp. The large majority of the species seems to be endemic to the North Sea Basin. It is attemped to link the distribution of the species to ecological conditions (especially bathymetry) of the different beds.
