Seventeen species of the Tabulata, including four new species and one new subspecies, have been described from the Givetian and Frasnian deposits of the Żerniki IG-l borehole in the southern part of the Świętokrzyskie (Holy Cross)
Mountains. The Givetian and Frasnian assemblages of Żerniki differ in their small taxonomic differentiation and in specific spectrum from assemblages found in other part of the Holy Cross Mts., Cracow Region and Lublin Region.
As compared with coeval assemblages of Western (the Ardennes) and Eastern (the Urals, the East-European Platform) Europe, the Givetian and Frasnian assemblages under discussion are transitional in character.

Key words: Tabulata, Upper Devonian, Poland.
