Abstract
    To date, at least six species of lobster have been recorded from Upper Cretaceous (Campanian-Maastrichtian) strata in the extended type area of the Maastrichtian Stage (NE Belgium, SE Netherlands), but none of these species occurs in the Late Campanian Zeven Wegen Member (Gulpen Formation). In the present paper, a fragmentary moult of the erymid Enoploclytia leachii (MANTELL, 1822) from this unit, which preserves most of the cephalothorax and portions of chelae and walking appendages, is described and illustrated. The new specimen represents one of the youngest records of this long-ranging (latest Cenomanian-Late Campanian) species.
