Abstract
    An overview of eleven disused Neogene regional stages from Belgium is presented. Some of the regional stages were already brought into use in the nineteenth century, but are nowadays considered ill defined and of no use in the light of the modern stratigraphic concepts. An overview of their definition and history is given, together with the argumentation for the abandonment of each unit and its present status. The disused chronostratigraphic units belonged to the Miocene, the Pliocene and the Holocene series.
