Abstract: From the Early Pleistocene fauna of Somssich-hegy 2, three cricetid taxa were described by Dénes Jánossy (Cricetulus sp., Allocricetus sp., Cricetus cricetus runtonensis). A revision of the material by the present author found four species (Allocricetus bursae, Allocricetus ehiki, Cricetus nanus, Cricetus runtonensis). On the basis of a morphological analysis we can distinguish different evolutionary lines among the Hungarian Pleistocene Cricetus. With 33 figures and 28 tables.
