Abstract: This paper presents otoliths housed in the Department of Palaeontology and Geology of Hungarian Natural History Museum, Budapest. In addition to the synonym lists, it includes information on each species’ palaeogeographical and stratigraphical range. The collection consists of 54 taxa from the Middle Eocene to the Late Miocene sediments of the Tethys, the Paratethys and the Lake Pannon. The total number of specimens is 472. With the exception of a few specimens, until now the otoliths were unidentified. This work provides previously unpublished otolith records from the small basins of the North Hungarian Mountains.
