Abstract: Revised finds from the Early Miocene of Hungary are indicative of the widespread but sporadic Gomphotherium ‘annectens group’, they increase the number of the few known localities, yielding these primitive gomphotheres. We ascertain that Gomphotherium praetypicum (TASNÁDI KUBACSKA, 1939), based on material from Zagyvapálfalva (Hungary), is a valid taxon, however, its relationships and possible synonymy with G. sylvaticum TASSY, 1985 and G. hannibali WELCOMME, 1994 remain unclear due to scarcity of material attributed to all of these three taxa.
