Abstract (in english)
   A rich collection of Lower Cretaceous ammonites from the Pieniny Limestone Formation was accumulated during comprehensive biostratigraphic studies of the locality of Podbranč. The most complete section and the largest number of ammonites come from an abandoned first level of the local quarry. Their taxonomic processing as well as their stratigraphic evaluation is the subject of the submitted contribution. In the taxonomic part, 14 most significant ammonite species are described. The ammonites prove the early Hauterivian to late Barremian age of the limestone. Some of the determined ammonites are index zone species; a number of them have not been reported from the Western Carpathians yet. All found species fall into the category of the Mediterranean faunal province
