Abstract: The invertebrate fauna of the lower Lajta River is discussed, based on records of several important groups of freshwater invertebrate macrofauna. The faunal composition resembles that of the Danube and is unique for the lowland tributaries of the Kisalföld plain. Throughout the lower reaches of the Lajta, an extensive, longitudinal zonation was illustrated. The former situation of the watersheds and the upper Pleistocene origin of this river is still indicated in the present-day faunal composition.Keywords:
