Abstract: Pomáz is one of the best dated paleobotanical localities in the area of the Central Paratethys. According to nannoplankton studies the layer with the leaf remains belongs to the NP 25 Zone (Egerian, Late Oligocene). The flora represents a zonal vegetation because the proportion of the riparian elements is very low and the swamp elements are missing. The zonal vegetation consists of thermophilous elements, including laurophyllous evergreen and deciduous members. Daphnogene div. sp., Palaeocarya orsbergensis, Platanus fraxinifolia, Leguminosae div. sp. are characteristic and some of them are dominant. Arctotertiary elements are rare, except Ulmus pyramidalis which is abundant. All Arctotertiary elements are members of riparian vegetation. This means that their presence was controlled mainly by the edaphic conditions and not by the climate. Therefore, the zonal vegetation indicates a subtropical, humid climate.
