Keywords: Parautochthonous leaf-assemblage | Swampy facies | Mataschen/Styria/Austria | Upper Miocene/Lower Pannonian

From the clay pit of the Leca company in Mataschen SW of Fehring, (Styria, Austria) a parautochthonous, species-poor leaf-assemblage is described from a basal tree stump-bearing clay horizon. The assemblage of “Pteris oeningensis”, Glyptostrobus europaeus, Juglans acuminata, Myrica sp., Salix varians vel Salix holzeri, Rhizocaulon sp. and ?Zingiberoideophyllum liblarense indicates swampy conditions. In the same clay pit, upper parts of the sequence yielded a silty layer with a rather diverse assemblage. The preliminary list of taxa from this layer is presented here. This assemblage includes at least 28 woody taxa, most of them characteristic of mesophytic habitats. Unusual for the late Miocene of Central Europe is the high percentage of evergreen woody taxa in this assemblage.
