Abstract
    A large suite of Lower Maastrichtian brachiopods, collected by W. M. Felder from strata subsequently assigned to the Vijlen Member (Gulpen Formation; southern Limburg, The Netherlands) and housed in the collections of the Natuurhistorisch Museum Maastricht has been studied. On the basis of these, several new rhynchonellid, terebratulid and terebratelloid generic and specific are erected, and a new family is introduced. These new records considerably augment our knowledge of brachiopod faunas in the Lower Maastrichtian (Belemnella obtusa/B. sumensis zone interval) of northwestern Europe.
