Abstract: The flora of the westernmost hills of the Pilis Mts, which are known for their diverse geological features, is presented in this study. Strázsa-hegy is built of limestone and sandstone, while Tábla-hegy consists of andesite and dacite. Loess and sand characteristically cover their foothills in some localities. The southern foothills and the rolling landscape around them are called Sátorkőpuszta. Located at the "meeting place" of the botanically separated areas Bakonyicum, Matricum and Arrabonicum, the region is also regarded as a phytogeographically transitional area. In the flora of this region plants typically known from continental areas (such as Spiraea media, Acer tataricum, Stipa tirsa, Echium maculatum, Nepeta nuda, Quercus robur and the association Ceraso-Quercetum) occur together with those of somewhat sub-Mediterranean character (Fraxinus ornus, Lathyrus sphaericus, Piptatherum virescens, Crupina vulgaris, etc. and the association Vicio sparsiflorae-Quercetum). Also, the presence of lowland, so-called "Pannonian" species is significant both in the flora and vegetation of the study area (characteristic associations like Festucetum vaginatae and species such as Plantago arenaria, Dianthus serotinus, etc.).
