Abstract: Tracks attributable to small ornithischian dinosaurs (thyreophorans and cerapodans) are generally rare in comparison with those representing large individuals. Here we report a presumed stegosaur track (ichnogenus Deltapodus) only 5.7 cm long originating from the Lower Cretaceous Tugulu Group of Xinjiang Province, China, co-occurring with the tracks of larger individuals. This track is only 15% as long as the type of Deltapodus curriei from the same locality. This is the smallest… 

Lower cretaceous avian-dominated, theropod, thyreophoran, pterosaur and turtle track assemblages from the Tugulu Group, Xinjiang, China: ichnotaxonomy and palaeoecology

Although the Huangyangquan assemblages lack some of the larger components known from other Lower Cretaceous localities, the association of abundant tracks of smaller tetrapods appears to be representative of lacustrine basin faunas of this region, and are an excellent example of the shorebird ichnocoenosis/ichnofacies concept.

Dinosaur Tracks from the Lower Jurassic Lufeng Formation of Northern Central Yunnan, China

An increasing number of theropod-dominated tracksites have been reported from the Jurassic and Cretaceous of China. These include a significant number from the Lower Jurassic of the Lufeng Basin,

Trackways of small (foot length ∼12–15 cm) robust ornithopods are relatively uncommon in the Cretaceous, where most tracks attributed to iguanodontids and hadrosaurs range in size from ∼20–80 cm. The

The Lotus Fortress site is developed as a spectacular, geologically, paleontologically- and a culturally-significant destination within Qijiang National Geological Park and reveals new information about the composition of tetrapod faunas from formations in which the skeletal record is sparse.

Dacentrurine stegosaurs (Dinosauria): A new specimen of Miragaia longicollum from the Late Jurassic of Portugal resolves taxonomical validity and shows the occurrence of the clade in North America

A largely complete specimen of M. longicollum is described, confirming this to be the first known dacentrurine stegosaur in America, coherent with the hypothesis of an ephemeral land bridge between North America and Iberia that allowed faunal exchange.
