The writer describes fragme nts of dentition of Agriotherium Wagn. (=Hyaenarctos Falc. & Cautl.) from the Pliocene bone breccia recovered at Węże near Działoszyn, Poland. He refers these remains to an individual of a new species from genus Agriotherium intermedium, which occupies an intermediate systematic position between A. insigne (Gerv.) from Montpellier in France and A. sivalense (Falc. & Cautl.) from Siwalik in India, in what concerns the shape of the
crown of molars, that of M2 in particular.
