Abstract: A Middle Miocene microvertebrate fauna was excavated from four localities (Sh 0-3) close to Sámsonháza. The vast majority of the mammal finds came from Sh 3. The fossiliferous layer of this locality yielded also a rich molluscan fauna referring to the Middle Badenian. The described insectivors and rodents came from the MN 6 zone of the Astaracian faunal unit.Keywords:
