Abstract

The vertebrate fossil record from the Dúbravka-pole site in the territory of Devínska Kobyla consists of Brachypotherium cf. brachypus and Lartetotherium sp. dental and osteological remains. The both taxa lived in swampy to forested land at the shore of shallow brackish sea (or lagoon?) during the Early Sarmatian (MN 7/8). Their occurrence is probably a result of intermittent faunal migrations during changing environmental conditions at the end of the Middle Miocene.


Key words: Brachypotherium, Lartetotherium, Miocene, Palaeoenvironment, Dúbravka-pole, Slovakia
