Acta Palaeontologica Polonica 45 (1), 2000: 85-90

Remains of multituberculates are very rare in Upper Cretaceous deposits of Europe, being described only from the upper Maastrichtian Sinpetru Formation, Hafeg Basin, Romania. New excavations undertaken in the coeval DensupCiula Formation from Hateg led to the recovery of a few isolated multituberculate teeth, which we describe herein. At least some of these teeth belong to Hainina Vianey-Liaud, 1979, a poorly known Paleocene genus from western Europe.
