Abstract

The paper describes one of the very few avian remains from the Oligocene of Poland. It consists of a slab and counterslab with imprints of a partly damaged right tarsometatarsus and several phalanges of which those of the hallux are well-preserved. The fossil has been compared to all extinct and most extant taxa. Although the foot resembles that of extant columbids, its systematic affiliations remain unresolved due to its incompleteness.
