Abstract

More than 7000 shrew specimens were found in the Upper Miocene localities of Polgárdi, Hungary. The wel! preserved bones and teeth were deposited mainly by pit-fall accumulations. Crusafontina kormosi (BACHMAYER& WILSON), Amblycoptus oligodon KORMOS, Kordosia topali (JANossY), Blarinella dubia (BACHMAYER& WILSON),Asoriculus gibberodon (PETÉNYl), Zelceina soriculoides (SULIMSKl) and Paenelimnoecus repenningi (BACHMAYER& WILSON) were identified from the samples. on the basis of these occurrences, all sites belong to the Late Turolian MN 13 Zone, but locality 4 is somewhat older, and locality 2 is earlier than locality 5. The soricids suggest that Polgárdi 2 and 4 were wel! watered, forested areas in semiarid climate, while Polgárdi 5 might have been an open enviromnent in akarstic grassland area.
