    <description descriptionType="Abstract">New material on anguines is described from
two Lower Miocene localities in Northwest Bohemia in the
Czech Republic: Merkur (MN 3) and Dolnice (MN 4).
Although the material is disarticulated, it was possible to
assign several elements to one species based on similar
ornamentation of the skull roof bones and similar morphology
of the teeth. Two new species, Ophisaurus holeci
nov. sp. and Pseudopus rugosus nov. sp. are described.
Pseudopus rugosus becomes the second species of the
genus Pseudopus described from the Merkur locality. In
addition to the new Ophisaurus species above, the species
O. spinari is described on the basis of the parietal and
Ophisaurus sp. 1 and Ophisaurus sp. 2 on the basis of the
frontal bones. A further five anguines, designated Anguine
morphotypes 1 to 6, are described on the basis of the
marginal teeth bearing elements (premaxilla, maxilla and
dentary) and on the pterygoid, the angular bone and elements
forming the posterior portion of the lower jaw. The
described specimens present a relevant contribution to our
knowledge of the diversity of anguines in the Early Neogene
of Europe.</description>
