At the request of the Curator of the paleontological collections of Teyler’s Museum, Haarlem, two tests are described belonging to the old collection, described by T.C. Winkler in the ”Catalogue systématique de la collection paléontologique de la Musée Teyler”, Haarlem, 1864, p. 196 under Nr. 10980 as “Cidaris spec.” from Maastricht. Dr. C. O. van Regteren Altena, because they proved to belong to a new species, registered them under the new Nr. 16053. No exact layer in the Cretaceous is mentioned, as stated below they may belong to remaniated Eocene material. For the genus Scutellina L. Agassiz, 1841, we refer to Mortensen’s Monograph of the Eohinoidea IV, 2, 1948, p. 229, and to J. Wyatt Durham’s chapter on the Clypeasteroids in R.C. Moore’s Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology, Part U, Echinodermata 3, vol. 2, p. U 471.
