Abstract: The fossil remains, mainly leaves, of the genus Ulmus L. are one of the most characteristic elements of the Hungarian Upper Oligocene (Egerian). Systematic revision confirmed the occurrence of four elm species: Ulmus pyramidalis Goepp., U. pseudopyramidalis Z. Kvaček et Hably, U. fischeri Heer, and Ulmus cf. minuta Goepp. (= U. plurinervia Ung.). They are the earliest Arctotertiary taxa in the Hungarian Tertiary. Ulmus pyramidalis Goepp. is the most widespread elm in the Hungarian Egerian. The occurrence of the various Ulmus species at different Egerian localities was dependent on the prevailing palaeoecological conditions, with the sedimentological characteristics of the fossil locality also playing an important part.
