Abstract (in english)
   The paper presents a summary of data on changes in oceanic fish otolith associations that are not induced by local conditions, and that can be used for biostratigraphy in distant basins of southern and central Europe. The terminal Oligocene is characterised by the last occurrence of Valenciennellus brzobohatyi, Opisthoproctus stellaris, Xenodermichthys senesi, Scopelarchus nolfi, Diaphus longiostris, D. pristismetallis, and D. perspicillatoides. Moreover, none of the six Diaphus species, known from the European Oligocene, cross the Oligo-Miocene boundary. Early Miocene deposits are characterised by other Diaphus species, and by the appearance of "non-Diaphus" myctophid genera. These increase in number during the early and middle Miocene. Diaphus cahuzaci Hygophum derthonensis and Lobianchia aff. dofleini which appear in nannoplankton Zone NN1, are good markers for the beginning of the Miocene
