Definition A thin claystone section intercalated between the De Lier Member and the IJsselmonde Sandstone Member or Nieuwerkerk Formation, with marine fossils.
Upper Boundary The upper boundary with the De Lier Member is of a more gradual nature.
Lower Boundary The lower boundary, with the IJsselmonde Sandstone Member, is well-defined at the top of the sandstone. To the southeast of the basin, the member can overlie the coastal/fluvial-plain deposits of the Nieuwerkerk Formation
Distribution Southern margin of the West Netherlands Basin, where the IJsselmonde Sandstone Member (or equivalent Nieuwer-kerk Formation) and the De Lier Member occur. Towards the basin centre the member loses its identity in the main Vlieland Claystone Formation.
Age Late Barremian. Assemblages characterised by the pres-ence of Pseudoceratium pelliferum and Odontochitina operculata.
Depositional Setting Palaeogeographical data and facies association suggest a marginal-marine deposition.
Sequence Stratigraphy This member reflects the LZB 3.5 Maximum Flooding.
