25 samples from the 83W421 Kortrijk (Sint-Antonius) and 83W44 Kortrijk (Lust) boreholes are investigated. Acritarchs provide a more reliable and precise correlation of these two boreholes than graptolites and chitinozoans because of large barren and/or not indicative intervals. Based on this correlation, two subzones of the Dactylmofusa estillis Biozone are proposed around the Aeronian-Telychian boundary (Llandovery, Silurian). The two subzones are also found in sections from the Midlands platform and Welsh Basin and thus provides a tool to correlate shallower and deeper facies, at least on a regional scale.
