Fossil remains are here described of Lacertlia collected from the bone breccia of Węże, Poland. They consist mostly of skull and mandible fragments, also of vertebrae and bone scales referable to genera Lacerta, Ophisaurus and others, not more closely identifiable. These reptiles come very near to representatives of the same genera described from the Pliocene of Hungary. Ophisaurus pannonicus Kormos occurs in both these faunal assemblages.
