Abstract Excavations in the locality Gritsev (karstic fillings of the upper Miocene age in a limestone quarry in Shepetovsky District, Khmelnitsky Region, Ukraine) revealed, since 1983 when excavations started, a rich vertebrate fauna that includes also amphibians and lizards. The material is rich enough to assess individual and developmental variation within some taxa (e.g., Pseudopus pannonicus). Although the fragmentary nature of the disarticulated bones does not sometimes allow precise taxonomic assignment, morphological differences in, e.g., dental characteristics suggest the presence of some other ones, not formally named forms. Thus, the list of the amphibian and reptilian taxa from Gritsev is by far not complete, but their osteological characteristics are representative to such a degree that they can provide information for comparisons with other European Miocene herpetofaunas.
