Abstract

A classic but very rare "Árpád-type"mollusc assemblage, representing the endemic fauna of the Late Miocene-Early Pliocene Lake Pannon, was discovered in Kozármisleny (near Pécs, southern Hungary). The fossils were collected from silt layers deposited in the shallow sublittoral zone of Lake Pannon, exposed in an 8-10 m high road cut. The assemblage contained some very rare species, including the type species of the genus Lymnocardium, L. haueri (M. HÖRNES). Palynological investigations from the same layers failed to yield age-diagnostic dinoflagellates, and pointed to a brackish - freshwater depositional environment and warm temperate climate.
