   The first detailed description and comparative information is given for the carnivoran fauna from Wölfersheim (Hesse), the only Ruscinian (MN 15) fauna thus far known from Germany. The Carnivora is represented by 31 specimens which belong to the following taxa: Ursus minimus boeckhi n.comb., cf. Pannonictis, Enhydrictis ardea, Baranogale sp., Mustela plioerminea, and Parailurus anglicus. The specimens of Ursus, Enhydrictis, and Mustela show the most plesiomorphic states of tooth morphology hitherto known in these genera. With a total of 18 specimens, Parailurus is the most common carnovoran in Wölfersheim and makes the collection the second largest assemblage of fossil ailurids. It provides new information about intraspecific dental variability which allows placement of all specimens described as P. hungaricus into the type species P. anglicus. Furthermore, we offer additonal support for the validity of the genus Parailurus. One controversial specimens is interpreted as a dP4/ of P.
   anglicus instead of as an aberrant M1/ of a new Parailurus species. The carnivoran fauna of Wölfersheim is unique due to the presence of both Mustela and Parailurus. It confirms the existence of a nearly uniform carnivoran fauna from MN 14 to MN 16 in Eurasia and in more limited respects also in North America. Nevertheless, some faunal differences can be fond between southwestern and central/northeastern Europe
