Title: Badenian (Middle Miocene) Conoidean (Neogastropoda) fauna from Letkés (N Hungary)
Year: 2013
Volume: 30
Pages: 53-100.

Abstract: Taxonomic composition of a newly excavated Badenian Conoidean fauna (families Conidae and Conilithidae) from Letkés (Börzsöny Mts, Hungary) is given. Thirty nine species are described, including Leptoconus hirmetzli sp. n. designated here. Several taxa represent new records from the Miocene deposits of Hungary: Chelyconus dertogibbus (Sacco), Lautoconus eschewegi (da Costa), L. belus (d’Orbigny), L. raristriatus (Bellardi et Michelotti), L. ventricosus (Gmelin), Lithoconus parvicaudatus (Sacco), L. planospira (Erünal-Erentöz), L. cf. anguliferus (Peyrot), Monteiroconus aldrovandi (Brocchi), Plagioconus marii (Sacco), Varioconus mucronatolaevis (Sacco), V. taurinensis (Bellardi et Michelotti). The overall similarity of this Central Paratethyan and of the Mediterranean Conoidean faunas indicates a close relationship between the two palaeobiogeographic domains during the Middle Miocene. With 160 figures.
