    Representatives of a new Late Maastrichtian species of the terebratulid brachiopod Cyranoia COOPER, 1983 are described from the Meerssen Member (Maastricht Formation) of the Maastricht area (southern Limburg, The Netherlands) and from Vroenhoven (province of Limburg, Belgium). This new taxon is amongst the largest brachiopods ever recorded from Upper Cretaceous strata. The structure of its loop is illustrated by transverse serial sections and by preparation of one specimen. The assignment of this species to the genus Cyranoia COOPER, 1983 is discussed in detail.
