Thirty five Lower Kimmeridgian ostracod species, including 13 new ones, assigned to 9 families, are described. They come from five borings at Strzałków locality (NW border of the Holy Cross Mts.). A subdivision of the Lower Kimmeridgian of this region into 3 ostracod horizons is proposed. The Lower Kimmeridgian ostracod assemblage of this region resembles those of the contemporaneous deposits in Central and Northern France, Southern England, Northwest Germany, Denmark and of the Swiss Jura.
