Title: Thermophilous elements from the late Miocene flora of Pécs-Danitzpuszta (Mecsek Mts, Hungary) – confirmed by cuticular analysis
Year: 2019
Volume: 50
Pages: 9-17.


Abstract: The late Miocene (Pannonian) flora of Pécs-Danitzpuszta was first studied and published by Hably & Sebe (2016). Recent collections, however, revealed additional foliage remains, some also providing epidermal details. A well-preserved leaf fragment assigned to Laurophyllum based on its micromorphology proves the presence of Lauraceae. A frequent element of European Miocene floras, Laurophyllum pseudoprinceps, is first described from the late Miocene (Pannonian) of Hungary. In addition, a leaflet of Engelhardia orsbergensis is also first reported as a thermophilous element in the Hungarian late Miocene.
