In a series of papers describing Late Cretaceous and Early Palaeogene echinoderm faunas (exclusiveof holothurians) of the Maastrichtian type area, the present contribution comprises a detailed accountof the litho- and chronostratigraphy and biozonations of these deposits, and of localities from whichthe echinoderm material to be described stems. In subsequent papers reference will be made to thisintroductory part.

L'inversion tectonique cretacee est comparee entre la partie occidentale du Massif houiller du Rhin-Ruhr et le bassin de Campine.Felder et coll. ont deja decrit des changements lateraux de facies resultant d'une inversion du Graben de Roermond dans le Cretace superieur de Campine et du Limbourg. La presente etude a permis d'en etudier les mecanismes et leur datation.L'inversion tectonique a debute au Cenomanien au Turonien, culmine du Coniacien au Campanien, attenue au Maestrichtien et Tertiaire...

Des recherches pluridisciplinaires dans les depots du Cretace superieur (Santonien a Maastrichtien) entre Aachen et Antwerpen (NE Belgique, SE Pays-Bas et region d'Aachen en Republique federale allemande) ont demontre leur histoire sedimentaire relativement complexe. Des correlations entre differentes lithologies sont basees sur des bioclastes, des Foraminiferes, des Ostracodes, des Belemnites et des logs petrophysiques des sondages. Le depot a ete controle par une montee continue du niveau de l...

L'etude microtectonique des structures cassantes des craies et calcarenites de la partie centrale du Bassin de Mons, a permis de mettre en evidence la succession des etats de paleo-contrainte au cours du Cretace superieur et du Tertiaire. Ainsi, ont ete reconnus avec une excellente coherence:- au Wealdien, une extension N-S (failles normales E-W), peut-etre liee a une dynamique karstique,- au Campanien superieur, une extension NW-SE (failles normales NE-SW),- au Maastrichtien inferieur, des decr...

Les depots du Cretace recent dans la region de Kunrade dans le Limbourg meridional (sud-est des Pays-Bas) se distinguent des affleurements classiques autour de Maastricht par leur lithofacies et leur contenu en fossiles. Sur la base de donnees bio- et ecostratigraphiques dans 24 coupes (2 sondages et 22 affleurements), une subdivision ecostratigraphique en cinq ecozones est proposee. Cette ecozonation est correlee avec des coupes situees a Valkenburg a/d Geul (Sondages Thermae), Maastricht (Sond...

Giant scaphitid ammonites from the Maastrichtian of Europea have generally been assigned to Acanthoscaphites NOWAK, 1911. Prior to the present study, this genus comprised five species: A. tridens (KNER, 1848), A. varians (ŁOPUSKI, 1911), A. verneuilianus (D'ORBIGNY, 1841), A. sp. of KENNEDY (1987) and A. sp. of KENNEDY & CHRISTENSEN (1997). Of the first-named taxon, material from Aachen-Schneeberg of Early Maastrichtian age, including the specimen illustrated by HOLZAPFEL (1887-89) long thought ...

Early twentieth century subsurface collections from mine shafts in northeast Belgium and adjacent parts of the Netherlands and recent outcrop collections include ammonite assemblages of early Campanian to latest Maastrichtian age. In the present paper additional material of the pachydiscids Eupachydiscus levyi (DE GROSSOUVRE, 1894), Pachydiscus (P.) launayi DE GROSSOUVRE, 1894 and P. (P.) colligatus (BINK-HORST, 1861) and the scaphitids Scaphites (S.) gibbus SCHLUTER, 1872 and Trachyscaphites s....

The pachydiscid ammonite Menuites terminus (WARD & KENNEDY, 1993) is described from the upper­ most Maastrichtian deposits in the type area of the Maastrichtian Stage in southeast Netherlands (upper part of the Meerssen Member of the Maastricht Formation) and in central Poland (upper part of the Kazimierz Opoka). Variation in whorl section and ribbing in the material studied is documented. The presence of M. terminus places the upper parts of the Meerssen Member and of the Kazimierz Opoka in the...

Le Vijlen Chalk Member (Maastrichtien, Cretace superieur) dans l'Euregio Meuse-Rhin. Des echantillons de craies du Membre de Vijlen provenant de nombreux sondages et affleurements ont ete analyses pour leur contenu en bioclastes entre 1 et 2,4 mm afin d'etre en mesure de presenter une vue d'ensemble de ce depot. Les sections etudiees ont pu etre correlees entre elles principalement sur la base des foraminiferes. Des coupes au travers de la region revelent que des mouvements tectoniques conjointe...

In the northwestern part of the Arabian Platform, the Adiyaman district (SE Turkey) displays some Lower-Middle Cenomanian deep-marine sediments of the Derdere Formation. These sediments are yielding abundant echinodermal remains, among which some thecal and brachial plates are assignable to roveacrinids. Routine microfacies analysis of the Lower-Middle Cenomanian part of the Derdere Formation revealed unexpected early Cenomanian assemblages of roveacrinoidal ossicles, comparable with those forme...

Large, denuded tests of holasteroid echinoids were robust benthic islands in the Late Cretaceous seas of northwest Europe. A test of Hemipneustes striatoradiatus (Leske) from the Nekum Member (Maastricht Formation; upper Maastrichtian) of southern Limburg, the Netherlands, is encrusted by a large oyster, Pycnodonte (Phygraea) vesiculare (Lamarck). This specimen is a palaeoecological conundrum, at least in part. No other members of the same oyster spatfall attached to this test and survived. Inde...

Abstract Microcrinoids belonging to the Order Roveacrinida are described from the Late Maastrichtian Peedee Formation of North Carolina. Five species are present; Applinocrinus texanus Peck, 1973, Lucernacrinus multispinosus Gale, sp. nov., Birgenelocrinus degraafi Jagt, 1999, B. jagti Gale, sp. nov. and Peedeecrinus sadorfi Gale, gen. et sp. nov. Two of these species (A. texanus, B. degraafi) and close relatives of two others (Lucernacrinus, Birgenelocrinus jagti) are known from the upper Maast...

Lower Maastrichtian strata (Belemnella obtusa and lower–middle B elemnella sumensis cephalopod biozones) at the Saturn quarry near Kronsmoor (northern Germany) were logged and sampled in detail (33 bulk samples of about 6 kg each) for high-resolution quantitative palaeoecological analysis of the benthic fauna. Following standardised preparation, the size fractions 500 μm–1 mm and >1 mm were considered, documenting a diverse benthic assemblage of bryozoans, brachiopods, bivalves, various echinoid...

Abstract New Normapolles reproductive structures are described from several Late Cretaceous stratigraphic horizons of central and western Europe: the Klikov Formation (late Turonian–Santonian), the Aachen Formation (Santonian) and the Walbeck Formation (Maastrichtian). They are assigned to a new genus, Zlivifructus , containing three new species, Zlivifructus vachae , Zlivifructus sklenarii and Zlivifructus sp. The new genus is based on several small flowers/fruits. The flowers are bisexual, bis...

Seagrasses are the only seed plants to have invaded marine environments successfully. Seagrass fossils are both rare and have received scant attention so far. However, among the limited number of plant fossils from marine strata in the Maastrichtian type area, remains of seagrasses are relatively common. The present paper provides a detailed description of the morphology and anatomy of the stems and attached roots of Thalassocharis bosquetii Debey ex Miquel, 1853, mainly on the basis of silicifi...

Abstract Recently collected material, in fine- to medium-grained biocalcarenites and in coeval flint nodules, of the tegulated inoceramid taxa Spyridoceramus tegulatus (von Hagenow, 1842) and Tenuipteria argentea (Conrad, 1858) from various members of the Gulpen Formation and the overlying Maastricht Formation allows their stratigraphical ranges to be refined. It is concluded that the ranges correspond closely to those in east-central Poland (Vistula [Wisla] River valley region), where S. tegula...

Abstract Isolated remains of mosasaurids and plesiosaurians are recorded from the lower Campanian Bottrop and Vaals formations of North Rhine-Westphalia, western Germany. A tooth crown from Bottrop-Fuhlenbrock, referred to an elasmosaurid plesiosaurian, represents the first record of this group from late-Upper Cretaceous strata of the area. Another presumed plesiosaurian remain is a fragmentary gastralium from Duisburg-Walsum. Some of the mosasaurid material from the Bottrop Formation (a tooth c...
