First evidence of stegosaurian Deltapodus footprints in North Africa (Iouaridène Formation, Upper Jurassic, Morocco)

  title={First evidence of stegosaurian Deltapodus footprints in North Africa (Iouarid{\`e}ne Formation, Upper Jurassic, Morocco)},
  author={Matteo Belvedere and Paolo Mietto},
Abstract:  New findings of dinosaur footprints are described from the Upper Jurassic Iouaridène ichnosite of Morocco. On the top of two surfaces, stratigraphically close to that bearing the famous Breviparopus taghbaloutensis trackways, two footprints were excavated and assigned to the ichnogenus Deltapodus. This ichnogenus is well known from the Middle Jurassic of Yorkshire and also occurs in Upper Jurassic deposits from Iberia and the United States. This finding represents the first record of… 

First record of stegosaur dinosaur tracks in the Lower Cretaceous (Berriasian) of Europe (Oncala group, Soria, Spain)

ABSTRACT This paper describes for the first time a stegosaur track from the Cretaceous of Europe. It focuses on a cast that preserves pes-manus tracks recovered in the Huérteles Alloformation of the

New Finds of Stegosaur Tracks from the Upper Jurassic Lourinhã Formation, Portugal

Eleven new tracks from the Upper Jurassic of Portugal are described and attributed to the stegosaurian ichnogenus Deltapodus. One track exhibits exceptionally well-preserved impressions of skin on

First Thyreophoran Type Tracks from the Middle Jurassic Chuanjie Formation of Yunnan Province, China

Abstract Two tridactyl footprints from the Chuanjie Formation (Middle Jurassic) of Yunnan Province, China are morphological characteristics of thyreophoran tracks. They show some similarities to

Tetradactyl Footprints of an Unknown Affinity Theropod Dinosaur from the Upper Jurassic of Morocco

The distinct morphology of the hallux of the Boutakioutichnium trackmaker –i.e. size and hallux position- are unique in the dinosaur autopodial record to date.

The Presence of Ankylosaur Tracks in the Guará Formation (Brazil) and Remarks on the Spatial and Temporal Distribution of Late Jurassic Dinosaurs

ABSTRACT The Guará Formation (Paraná Basin, southern Brazil) is an Upper Jurassic unit that yielded a dinosaur ichnoassemblage composed of theropod, ornithopod, and sauropod tracks. A new set of

First record of Deltapodus tracks from the Early Cretaceous of China

Theropod and Ornithischian Footprints from the Middle Jurassic Yanan Formation of Zizhou County, Shaanxi, China

New tracksites reported from the Zizhou area elucidate the nature of the Early-Middle Jurassic dinosaurian ichnofaunas in Shaanxi Province. The assemblage is composed of footprints and trackways of



First American Record of the Jurassic Ichnospecies Deltapodus brodricki and a Review of the Fossil Record of Stegosaurian Footprints

We describe the first American stegosaur track of the ichnospecies Deltapodus brodricki, collected in the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation of San Juan County, southeastern Utah, United States. The

Ichnological researches on the Upper Jurassic dinosaur tracksin the Iouaridène area (Demnat , central High-Atlas, Morocco)

Known since the beginning of the century, the Iouaridene ichnosite has never been studied in detail, even if it was frequently cited for the presence of the Breviparopus taghbaloutensis r. The

Probable stegosaurian dinosaur tracks from the Saltwick Formation (Middle Jurassic) of Yorkshire, England

Ichnological evidence for giant ornithopod dinosaurs in the Late Jurassic Lourinhã Formation, Portugal.

The Upper Jurassic Lourinha Formation (Lusitanian Basin, Portugal) contains a diverse dinosaur fauna comprising theropods, sauropods, stegosaurs, ankylosaurs and several genera of ornithopods. The

Reconstruction of Middle Jurassic Dinosaur-Dominated Communities from the Vertebrate Ichnofauna of the Cleveland Basin of Yorkshire, UK

Globally, skeletal remains of dinosaurs are particularly rare throughout much of the Middle Jurassic. Thus, other sources of evidence, and most importantly ichnofaunas, are important indicators of

Stegosaurian footprints from the Morrison Formation of Utah and their implications for interpreting other ornithischian tracks

The supposed stegosaurian track Deltapodus Whyte & Romano, 1994 (Middle Jurassic of England) is sauropod-like, elongate and plantigrade, but many blunt-toed, digitigrade, large ornithopod-like


After the discovery of several dinosaur tracksites in the Carixian (Pliensbachian; Middle Liassic) near Goulmima (Central High-Atlas of Morocco), a prospection campaign leads to the find of a new

A review of vertebrate track assemblages from the Late Jurassic of Asturias, Spain with comparative notes on coeval ichnofaunas from the western USA: implications for faunal diversity in siliciclastic facies assemblages.

Upper Jurassic tetrapod tracks from Asturias (Spain) are similar to those from the famous Morrison Forma- tion of the Rocky Mountain Region (western USA). Both regions provide evidence of diverse
