This communication was in the form of a letter addressed to the President, and accompanied a specimen of one of the bodies described. The markings in question appear to have been observed by several persons at Hastings; but they have not been found consecutive, or having any distinct relation to one another. They are of large size, the one presented to the Society measuring sixteen inches in length; but there does not appear, either from this specimen or from the account communicated by the… Expand

New dinosaur footprints exposed in rocks of the Wessex Formation, Lower Cretaceous, at Sandown, Isle of Wight, southern England
From February until the end of May 2007 sufficient exposure of the bedrock on the foreshore occurred to allow identification of a number of dinosaur footprints, and tridactyl and polydactyl prints with a range of sizes were clearly visible with possible ornithopod, theropod, sauropod, and ankylosaur origins.

The footprints of iguanodon: A history and taxonomic study
A historical survey of the discovery of footprints of iguanodont dinosaurs is presented, and the new ichnogenus Iguanodon‐tipus is proposed; its type ichnospecies, I. burreyi, is illustrated and discussed. Expand
New ornithopod footprints from the Lower Cretaceous Kitadani Formation, Fukui, Japan: Ichnotaxonomical implications
Abstract Two ichnogenus of “large-sized” ornithopods are found from the Lower Cretaceous (Aptian) Kitadani Formation in central Japan. Caririchnium isp. is characterized by the longer pes print thanExpand

Ichnotaxonomic Review of Large Ornithopod Dinosaur Tracks: Temporal and Geographic Implications
Eight ichnospecies belonging to the ichnogenera Caririchnium, Iguanodontipus and Hadrosauropodus are considered to be invalid and are here regarded as valid. Expand
New Important Iguanodontid and Theropod Trackways of the Tracksite Obernkirchen in the Berriasian of NW Germany and Megatracksite Concept of Central Europe
This article examines the high-resolution track horizon stratigraphy at the outcrop Obernkirchen. Massive sandstones, products of marine sand bar and fluviatile environments are present at theExpand
Dinosaur-landscape interactions at a diverse Early Cretaceous tracksite (Lee Ness Sandstone, Ashdown Formation, southern England)
Abstract An assemblage of dinosaur footprints is reported from the Lower Cretaceous (Berriasian-Valanginian) Ashdown Formation of East Sussex, southern England. The ichnofauna is concentrated aroundExpand
Upper Jurassic tidal flat megatracksites of Germany—coastal dinosaur migration highways between European islands, and a review of the dinosaur footprints
Dinosaur tracks occur at three vertebrate tracksites in north-western Germany, in the acanthicum/mutabilis ammonoid biozone of the basal Upper Kimmeridgian (Upper Jurassic, KIM 3-4 cycle,Expand
Trace fossils and pseudofossils from the Wealden strata (non-marine Lower Cretaceous) of southern England
