    The taxonomy of the Pinnidae from the Belgian Caenozoic is revised. The species are described and their occurrence is discussed. The family Pinnidae comprises five species in the Belgian Caenozoic: Atrina fragilis kalloensis n. subsp. (Pliocene), Atrina exanthema (SPEYER, 1864) (Oligocène), Atrina affinis (SOWERBY, 1821) (Eocene), Atrina propinqua (E. VINCENT, 1894) (Paleocene) and Pinna margaritacea LAMARCK, 1805 (Eocene). Unidentifiable fragments were collected in the Grimmertingen Sand Member (Oligocène) and in the Antwerp Sand Member (Miocene). Atrina fragilis kalloensis n. subsp. is described; its ecology and epibionts are discussed.
