Abstract (in english)
   A proven record of Hypolagus (Lagomorpha) from 22 Plio-Pleistocene (Ruscinian-Biharian) localities of the Czech and Slovak Republics is presented; from 8 localities the genus is reported or described for the first time. A detailed description and morphological analysis of the currently available dental and cranial material proved the presence of two species in the studied area and enabled to assessment of their intra- and interspecific variability, as well as the phylogenetic level of some paleopopulations. The complete history of research on the Central European Hypolagus is summarized, accompanied by nomenclatural revision and synonymy. A revision and designation of the type material is provided. The results are expressed in a description of Hypolagus petenyii Čermák & Fladerer sp. nov. from the Pliocene (Early Villányian) locality of Beremend (Hungary). Central European finds are discussed in the context of phylogeny and systematics of Eurasian Archaeolaginae leporids.
