A species-rich, middle Miocene, eratoid fauna collected at Borsodbóta (‘Királdi-útbevágás’, Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County, Hungary) is presented and two new species, Cypraeerato yolandae sp. nov. and Cypraeerato badenica sp. nov., are described. All Miocene Eratoidae of Europe that occurred in the Paratethys are revised and neotypes for Erato subcypraeola d’Orbigny, 1852, E. incrassata Coppi, 1876, E. spiralis Sacco, 1894 and E. hemmoorensis Schilder, 1929 are designated. The fauna is compared with those recorded from other European Miocene deposits.
