Abstract
    This paper is the second of a series dealing with the systematic revision of the European Cretaceous Chlamydinae (Pectinidae, Bivalvia, Mollusca). Ten species of the genus Lyropecten Conrad, 1863 are described: L. (Aequipecten) arlesiensis (Woods, 1902), L. (A.) campaniensis (D'Orbigny, 1847), L. (A.) pulchellus (Nilsson, 1827), L. (A.) acuteplicatus (Alth, 1850), L. (A.) subinflexus nom. nov., L. (A.) subaratus (Nilsson, 1827), L. (A.) sarumensis (Woods, 1902) (L. (A?) ternatus (Muenster in Goldfuss, 1833), L. (A?) trigeminatus (Goldfuss, 1833), Lyropecten ? septemplicatus (Nilsson, 1827). L. (A.) subinflexus is a new name for Pecten inflexus Von Hagenow, 1842, non Poli in Lamarck, 1818. L. (A.) acuteplicatus (Alth, 1850) is found to be a possible index fossil for Northern and Eastern European and Middle Eastern Maastrichtian strata.
