Abstract
    This paper presents a Late Maastrichtian rhynchonellide brachiopod species collected from the Kunrade Limestone (Maastricht area, The Netherlands). BOSQUET (1860) designated this rhynchonellide speciesas Rhynchonella alata NILSSON, 1827 non VALENCIENNES in LAMARCK, 1819. This designation is no longer acceptable as a reappraisal of this brachiopod, using transverse serial sections, allows the erection of a new species of the genus Almerarhynchia CALZADA, 1974. The presence of an Almerarhynchia species in the Maastricht area, confirms that Tethyan pulses occurred during the Late Maastrichtian in the Maastricht area.
