Forty (22 freshwater gastropod, 14 gastropod, 4 bivalves) species and 3428 specimens of molluscs were collected and identified from a 6.3 m sequence, obtained from a core profile, of lake and fluvial sediments at Kardoskút, South Hungary. According to changes in the molluscan fauna, six malacological-palaeoecological zones can be identified in this profile. The Quaternary malacological data from the Lake Fehér core profile suggests that the Late Pleniglacial and Early Holocene development of the molluscan fauna, and local palaeoclimatic and palaeoenvironmental conditions in this area, differed from other regions in Europe.
