Pages: 117-124.


Abstract: The Nagyharsany Crystal Cave is a new, probably Late Pleistocene palaeovertebrate locality, from where this is the first report on the herpetofauna. The study revealed the presence of Bufo viridis (Anura) and Natrix sp., the appearance of which taxa suggests that the fossiliferous sediments were probably accumulated at the beginning of an interglacial phase in a steppe or woody steppe environment. With 2 figures.
