Abstract: The site of Lipovany situated in South Slovakia near Lucenec has yielded new plant fossils including 1 bryophyte, 2 ferns, 2 conifers and 27 angiosperms. The vegetation corresponds to evergreen notophyllous/microphyllous broad-leaved forest suggesting subtropical humid conditions. Instead of the previous stratigraphical interpretation (Ottnangian), the age of the locality is older, i.e. the Eggenburgian according to new radiometric data. The nearest locality, Ipolytarnoc in Hungary, belongs to the same floristic complex.
