The proposed new ichnogenus Trusheimichnus n. ig., is a new name for forms hitherto assigned to Arenicolites. The trace fossil occurs in marine upper Middle Triassic limestones. A restudy of type material of Arenicolites franconicus Trusheim, 1934 revealed that the burrows are no U-burrows but irregular tubular structures that terminate in a small oval or bulbous chamber. Associated with the tubular structures are conical to lunate-shaped epichnial mounds. 
The Tumblagooda Sandstone revisited: exceptionally abundant trace fossils and geological outcrop provide a window onto Palaeozoic littoral habitats before invertebrate terrestrialization
Abstract The establishment of permanent animal communities on land was a defining event in the history of evolution, and one for which the ichnofauna and facies of the Tumblagooda Sandstone ofExpand
Categories of architectural designs in trace fossils: A measure of ichnodisparity
Abstract Ichnodisparity has been recently introduced as a concept to assess the variability of morphologic plans in biogenic structures, revealing major innovations in body plan, locomotory systemExpand
