Maria Aleksandra Bitner, Alfréd Dulai, László Kocsis, Pál Mihály Müller


Lingulide brachiopods, assigned to Lingula dregeri Andreae, 1893, have been identified from the Middle Miocene (Upper Badenian) of the Hungarian part of the Pannonian Basin. Although widely distributed in the Miocene of the Central Paratethys (Austria, Poland, Ukraine, Romania), the genus Lingula was not described previously from Hungary. Outside of the Central Paratethys, L. dregeri also has been recognized in the Atlantic and Mediterranean provinces and most probably in the Eastern Paratethys.
