This paper describes for the first time the ophiuroid species ?Asteronyx ornatus H. Weinberg Rasmussen, 1950 originating from the Upper Maastrichtian strata (Maastricht Formation, Meerssen and Emael Chalks) of Belgian Limburg and Liège. Future investigations will without doubt pinpoint the precise stratigraphical range of this species in the Cretaceous of Liège-Limburg. It is suspected that the species also will be recorded from similar strata in Dutch Limburg in the future.
