In two former papers communicated to the Geological Society I observed that certain large trifid bodies, presenting a resemblance to the casts of the impressions of birds′ feet, were numerous in the cliffs to the east and west of Hastings; and I suggested, from certain uniform peculiarities which these gigantic tridactyle impressions, or rather casts of impressions exhibited, that they might be really foot-marks of birds. Up to the date of my first notice, my discoveries of these colossal casts… Expand
Earliest Cretaceous cocoons or plant seed structures from the Wealden Group, Hastings, UK

A review of footprints from the Wessex Formation (Wealden Group, Lower Cretaceous) at Hanover Point, the Isle of Wight, southern England
Most of the large ornithopod footprints have a distinctive quadripartite morphology and are best assigned to the ichnogenus Caririchnium or in some cases Amblydactylus, but few are morphologically compatible with Iguanodontipus which was described from pre-Wealden deposits and appears to be little represented in the Wealden ichNofaunas.
