Abstract

Th e present paper deals with results of the study of porgy fish (Sparidae) remains from the upper Miocene, lower and upper Pliocene, and the lower Pleistocene of Ukraine. Isolated molariform teeth were assigned to Pagrus cinctus, Pagrus sp., as well as to Sparidae? gen. et sp. indet. These findings expand our knowledge of the species composition of the Late Cenozoic fish assemblages of Southeastern Europe and force partially reconsider conclusions formulated earlier about their environment.
