Like most samples from Belgium presented on the site at the moment, the precision of the topografical information for this locality is far from perfect. After nearly two years, we aren't able to give you a more precise location then the 1-km grid square on the 1:50 000 topografical map. The sample was take at the construction-site of several houses at the north-eastern side of the Rue du Céntenaire.
