Kovács and Papšová (1986) described a Pelsonian conodont fauna from the base of the Misina Hill key geologic section (Mecsek Mts, South Hungary), extracted from the host-rock of a Schreyerites? binodosus specimen published by Detre (1973). In the present paper the conodont fauna of the entire key section is described on the basis of 26 samples (from No. Bh-1 to Bh-26). A detailed taxonomic review of Gondolella bulgarica, G. hanbulogi and G. bifurcata is given, which are distinguished at species level (following the detailed morphotaxonomic study by Germani 2000), although all morphological transitions between the three taxa are present. They are united into the "G. bulgarica Group". Correlated with the Pelsonian type sections in the Balaton Highland (Aszófo, Felsoörs), the entire exposed sections of the Bertalanhegy and Dömörkapu Limestone Members belong to the upper part of the Pelsonian, e.g. to the Binodosus Zone. The Illyrian evaporitic "Middle Muschelkalk" event appears to be represented by a hiatus in the Mecsek "Muschelkalk" succession.
