    Two new species of spinocyrtiid brachiopods, Tenuicostella similis n. sp. and Tenuicostella vicina n. sp. are described. They are present in the La Roche (Upper Pragian) and Pesche (Lower Emsian) Formations. These new Belgian species are compared to the German species Tenuicostella tenuicosta (SCUPIN, 1900), Subcuspidella? humilis (SCUPIN, 1900), Spirifer subcuspidatus var. depressa FUCHS, 1909 and Spirifer incertus FUCHS, 1909. For Spirifer incertus FUCHS, 1909 (non Spirifer incertus HALE, 1858) a new name, Spirifer incertissimus n. nom., is proposed; the characteristics of the species are briefly discussed. The knowledge of Subcuspidella beugniesi GODEFROID, 2001 is completed by comparing this species to Subcuspidella? montana (SPRIESTERSBACH, 1925).
