Title: New "Middle Pliocene" Microvertebrate fauna from Northern Hungary (Osztramos Loc. 9)

Abstract: The author describes a new locality from the Osztramos Hill, Northern Hungary, namely Loc. 9. A detailed analysis of its microvertebrate fauna proves a Middle Pliocene age, older than the Uppermost Pliocene animal assemblages known to the present in Western and Eastern Europe as well (Perpignan, Csarnóta, Ivanovce etc.), but considerably younger that the classical Lower Pliocene (Pannonian, Pikermian etc.) faunas. It represents therefore a new microstratigraphical unite in Eastern Europe. There are described three new species: Muscardinus giganteus n. sp., Promimomys microdon n. sp. and Mimomys silasensis n. sp. seemingly characteristical for the age represented by the microfauna of the new locality.
