ABSTRACT
Plant fossils of Early Miocene age preserved in silty claystones occur in the incision of the Ohře River. The flora includes 23 taxa (2 conifers, 19 angiosperms and 2 taxa of uncertain systematic affinity). The reconstructed vegetation can be interpreted as a relatively temperate riparian forest with predominance of deciduous elements in moist habitats. According to the floristic analysis it is possible to correlate this flora with those of the Upper Inter-seam Member of the Most Formation from the Pětipsy area. This is also confirmed by similarities in the lithology of fossiliferous deposits in the two areas.
