Abstract: The flora of Sopron-Piusz puszta (W Hungary) excavated from layers of the upper part of Sarmatian was studied. The flora has provided dispersed cuticles, some seeds and cones, namely, taxa of Taxodiaceae, Pinaceae, Lauraceae, Buxaceae, Magnoliaceae, Rutaceae, Juglandaceae, Loranthaceae. Due to its limited number of specimens and allochthonous mode of fossilization, the flora is not suitable for detailed palaeoecological and palaeoclimatological reconstructions of the strict area, how and palaeoclimatological points of view.
