Three species of deers, Procapreolus wenzensis (Czyzewska, 1960). Cervus warthae n. sp. and Muntiacus polonicus n. sp. are described from the Pliocene locality Węże near Działoszyn. A new systematics of the subfamily Cervinae is here suggested and its evolution presented. The results of a quantitative analysis of deer remains from the bone breccia of that locality and the palaeontological conclusions drawn from them are also discussed.
