Abstract: Detailed biostratigraphic schemes of Neogene deposits of the Transcarpathian Basin, Carpathians, Carpathian Foredeep and sedimentary cover of the South-Western margin of East-European Platform (the Central Paratethys) are compiled and supplemented by new data. The lower boundary of the Miocene of the Central Paratethys is based on planktonic microorganisms (nannoplankton, foraminifers, dinocysts). This boundary lies in the upper part of the Lower Krosno and Middle Menilite "subformations". New lithostratigraphic units are established on the basis of paleontological data: Grushiv and Zhuriv Formations, and two membered division of the Badenian stage are established. Scheme correlation with the stage scales and biostratigraphic standards (nannoplankton, foraminifers) of the Tethys, the Central and Eastern Paratethys, and also with the adjacent territories of Poland, Rumania, Slovakia, Hungary and Russia was carried out.
