Abstract (in english)
   A survey of the Early Oligocene flora of Kundratice, North Bohemia, is given. This locality known from the last century has yielded 1 bryophyte, 2 ferns, 4 conifers and 82 angiosperms. Betula buzekii sp.n. and Dicotylophyllum deichmuelleri sp. n. have been described as new taxa. New combinations Cephalotaxus parvifolia (Walther) comb.n. Toxicodendron herthae (Unger) comb.n., Daphnogene cinnamomifolia (Brongniart) Unger forma lanveolata (Unger) stat.n. and Dicotylophyllum heeri (Engelhardt) comb.n. have been suggested. The preservation in oil shale and diatomite permitted the study of cuticles of coriaceous foliage. The reconstructed vegetation corresponds to a ripariand mesophytic forest with lower share of evergreen versus deciduous elements. The best equivalent of modern vegetation can be found in the warmtemperature zone of eastern China (the so-called Mixed Mesophytic Forest type). The site is dated by K-Ar radiometric method of the overlying basaltoid rock to 32.75 0.82 MA.
   A new floristic complex Seifenhennrsdorf/Kundratice has been proposed for the middle part of the Early Oligocene of Central Europe
