Abstract
    Mosasaur taxa currently known from Campanian-Maastrichtian strata in the Liege-Limburg (SE Netherlands, NE Belgium) and Mons (southern Belgium) basins are listed and briefly discussed and their stratigraphic ranges indicated. Recently published and/or ongoing work on coleoid and ammonoid cephalopods in these areas allows tie points between NW Europe and the United States (Western Interior, Gulf Coast, Atlantic Seaboard) to be established. Future studies need to refine the resultant, rather crude, scheme. The ultimate aim is a more robust picture of mosasaur taxonomy, biostratigraphy and palaeobiogeography, and a detailed evaluation of migratory patterns across the Atlantic.
