Description: Wolverine bone material is described from the famous Upper Pleistocene cave Srbsko Chlum-Komin in the Bohemian Karst, Czech Republic, along with an overview of recently known Czech sites. The Gulo gulo Linne material was found in one of the largest Ice Age spotted-hyena dens in Europe. As a result of non-systematic excavations, the taphonomy is partly unclear. Lower-jaw remains indicate a minimum of three wolverines. Two of the mandibles are cracked, which is most likely the result of carnivore scavenging. The absence of juvenile G. gulo suggests possible importation of the wolverines by hyenas Crocuta crocuta spelaea Goldfuss.

Keywords: Gulo gulo, Srbsko Chlum-Komin Hyena den cave
