Abstract: A gravel-pit near Győrújfalu yielded a large number of animal and plant fossils in the last ten years. The assemblage is precisely dated as Günz-Mindel (Cromerian) interglacial using vertebrate and mollusc biostratigraphy. A complete macrofossil analysis was carried out on the palaeobotanical material. As many as 115 taxa of fossil plants, including Characeae, were identified from the assemblage. Azolla filiculoides, Salvinia natans, Picea omorikoides, Ostrya carpinifolia, Najas tenuissima, Caldesia parnassifolia, Carex paucifloroides, C. elongatoides are Tertiary relics in the fossil flora. Various habitats could be reconstructed from the rich fossil assemblage demonstrating a diverse local environment around the meandering river system of the ancient Danube. With 2 tables.
