An assemblage of Lower Lias (Hettangian-?Sinemurian) ostracodes is reported for the first time from the Tatra Mts. Six ostracode species (including a new one Ogmoconchella? carpathica Błaszyk sp. n.) are recognized in the basal clastics of the Kopienlec Formation (Fatricum). Their stratigraphic range corresponds to the foraminiferal Ophthalmidium leischneri and Ophthalmidium walfordi Assemblage Zone (sensu Gaździlcki 1982).

Key words: ostracodes, Lower Lias, Tatra Mts., Poland.
