    The taxonomy and systematics of part of the Pliocene turrid gastropods of Belgium are revised. Three species are added to the Belgian fauna: Asthenotoma icenorum (WOOD, 1872), A. ratinckxi n. sp. and Bela antwerpiensis n. sp. The Belgian and part of the Dutch material, considered by GLIBERT (1960) to belong to Bela neerlandica (BEETS, 1946), is divided into four species: B. neerlandica, B. antwerpiensis n. sp., B. consimilis (HARMER, 1915) and B. keepingi (ETHERIDGE & BELL, 1898). Bela nebula auct. non MONTAGU, 1803 is described as Bela gliberti n. sp. Haedropleura delheidi (VINCENT, 1890) is united with Bela tenuistriata (BELL, 1871).
