The first brown coal mine at Visonta in the southern piedmont area of the Mátra Mts. in NE Hungary, was opened in 1969. The mine yielded very interesting flora remains the leaf material of which was studied by I. PÁLFALVY and L. RÁKOSI (1979) while the leaf and fruit remains were described by 3. LÁSZLÓ (1989a, b., 1991e, b). In this paper the authors give the presentational discussion of seed and fruit remains. The development of the series with brown coal seams belonging to the Bükkalja Brown Coal Formation may be put into the Dacian and Roumanian periods of the (s.l.) Pannonian. Ouring the studies made on the seed and fruit remains numerous taxa had been recorded and determined which were not recognized in the leaf material because they were not fossilized. Thus we had a chance to make florlstic and environmental reconstruction of the flora of a Glyptostrobus swamp with considerably richer and more complex plant remains than before.
