The pteropod species Limacina ernstkittli Janssen, 2012, described from the Chattian (Late Oligocene) of northern Germany and Malta, is recorded from euryhaline deposits of Rupelian (Early Oligocene) age in Belgium. Its occurrence in near coastal, not fully marine assemblages, anticipating earlier records with at least 5 mA, is surprising. Critical notes are provided regarding the introduction of the name Borgloon Formation in 1988 without the designation of a type locality / type section; we recommend to replace it by the name Atuatuca Formation which was coined in 1976 and being accompanied by a fully described type locality and type section.
