    A new species of amphiurid ophiuroid of early Late Campanian age, Deckersamphiura vitea, is recorded from the Benzenrade Member (Vaals Formation) as exposed at the De Wingerd quarry, south of Benzenrade (southern Limburg, The Netherlands). It is the second known member of the genus Deckersamphiura, the type of which (D. inusitata Jagt & Kutscher in Jagt, 2000) is of late Late Maastrichtian age. The decrease in the number of disc plates and plate circlets seen in D. inusitata is probably a paedomorphic trait characterising this lineage.
