This paper contributes to better understanding of the actual diversity of the Early–Middle Badenian (Langhian; middle Miocene) gastropods from the Central Paratethys by presenting seven Muricidae assemblages with more than 50 species from the northern and western part of the Pannonian Basin System (Börzsöny, Bakony and Mecsek Mts, Hungary). The Early Badenian fauna of Bánd (Bakony Mts) is of special interest for the extreme abundance of Janssenia echinulata (Pusch); the fauna of Mecsekpölöske (Mecsek Mts) is characterized by the unusual dominance of Favartia suboblonga (d’Orbigny), while the Middle Badenian fauna from Locality 2 at Hidas (Mecsek Mts) shows mass occurrence of Ocinebrina confluens (Eichwald). Extended geographical range of some rare species is also documented. Eight species: Bolinus brandaris torularius (Lamarck), Pterynotus pseuderinaceus (Boettger), Dermomurex scalaroides (Blainville), Ocinebrina landaui Kovács, Pteropurpura friedbergi (Cossmann & Peyrot), Phyllocoma michelottii (Bellardi), Coralliophila sacyi (Cossmann & Peyrot), C. serraticincta Bałuk, and a trophonine genus: Pterynopsis are recorded as new in Hungary. A new species, Ocinebrina bertai n. sp. is designated from the Middle Miocene locality of Bánd
