ABSTRACT Dinosaur tracks associated with coal-mines of the Middle to Upper Jurassic (Callovian–Tithonian) Walloon Coal Measures (Clarence–Morton Basin) have been reported on more than any other track-bearing formation in Australia, yet due to the brevity of ichnological information, remain poorly known. All these tracks were found in sediments directly above coal seams in the ceilings of subterranean mines. This style of mining ceased more than a quarter of a century ago, and with many of the…

ABSTRACT The Callide Basin Lower Jurassic units had been noted two decades ago as having preserved dinosaur ichnites, however, none had been shown or described at that time. The current study is the

Saurischian dinosaur tracks from the Upper Triassic of southern Queensland: possible evidence for Australia’s earliest sauropodomorph trackmaker

ABSTRACT Fossil footprints provide the only evidence of Triassic-aged dinosaurs in Australia. While historically several Triassic dinosaur tracksites are reported, only one specimen exists for direct

A diverse Late Cretaceous vertebrate tracksite from the Winton Formation of Queensland, Australia

The Snake Creek Tracksite reconciles the sauropod-, crocodyliform-, turtle-, and lungfish-dominated body fossil record of the ‘upper’ Winton Formation with its heretofore ornithopod- and theropod-dominated ichnofossil record.



The Dinosaurian Ichnofauna of the Lower Cretaceous (Valanginian-Barremian) Broome Sandstone of the Walmadany Area (James Price Point), Dampier Peninsula, Western Australia

ABSTRACT Extensive and well-preserved tracksites in the coastally exposed Lower Cretaceous (Valanginian-Barremian) Broome Sandstone of the Dampier Peninsula provide almost the entire fossil record of

Ornithopod dinosaur tracks from the Lower Jurassic of Queensland

Natural casts of seven small footprints have been identified on a single weathered block derived from the Precipice Sandstone (Lower Jurassic) of the Carnarvon Gorge, southeastern Queensland. The

New dinosaur tracksites from the Middle Jurassic of Madagascar: ichnotaxonomical, behavioural and palaeoenvironmental implications

Abstract:  New dinosaur tracksites are described from the Bajocian–Bathonian Bemaraha Formation of western Madagascar. Two track‐bearing surfaces can be followed over a distance of at least 4 km,

Didactyl Tracks of Paravian Theropods (Maniraptora) from the ?Middle Jurassic of Africa

The new ichnotaxon takes an important position in the ichnological fossil record of Gondwana and the mid-Jurassic biota worldwide, because it is among the earliest known records of paravian maniraptorans and of didactyl theropod tracks from Africa.

Reevaluation of the Lark Quarry Dinosaur Tracksite (Late Albian-Cenomanian Winton Formation, Central-Western Queensland, Australia): No Longer a Stampede?

ABSTRACT The Lark Quarry dinosaur tracksite has previously been recognized as recording the stampede of a mixed herd of dozens of small theropod and ornithopod dinosaurs. A reexamination of


Small tridactyl footprints are reported from the Blackstone Formation ofthe Ipswich Coal Measures near Dinmore. in southeast Queensland. Australia. These Upper Triassic (Carnian) footprints are

The first megatheropod tracks from the Lower Jurassic upper Elliot Formation, Karoo Basin, Lesotho

This new megatheropod trackway site marks the first occurrence of very large carnivorous dinosaurs in the Early Jurassic of southern Gondwana, an evolutionary strategy that was repeatedly pursued and amplified in the following ~135 million years until the next major biotic crisis at the end-Cretaceous.

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

Dinosaur tracks from the Langenberg Quarry (Late Jurassic, Germany) reconstructed with historical photogrammetry: Evidence for large theropods soon after insular dwarfism

Here we describe dinosaur tracks from the Langenberg Quarry near Goslar (Lower Saxony) that represent the first footprints from the Late Jurassic of Germany discovered outside the Wiehen Mountains.
