Abstract
    The homolid crab Hoplitocarcinus gibbosus (SCHLÜTER, 1879) is recorded for the first time from the lower Lower Campanian of Battice (Croix Polinard), province of Liège (northeast Belgium). Two specimens are available, one of them preserving fragmentary chelae and appendages, the other, elements of female sternal structures.
