A new Middle Jurassic tracksite dominated by non-avian theropod footprints from the Wangjiashan Formation in Pingchuan District, Baojishan Basin, Gansu Province has yielded a unique trackway with four consecutive manus-pes sets. Only three previous examples, all Early Jurassic in age, of theropod trackways are known with convincing examples of manus tracks and in each case, only two tracks were recorded in association with pes tracks with metatarsal impressions and pelvic traces indicating crouc...

For most fossil taxa, dietary inference relies primarily on indirect evidence from jaw morphology and the dentition. In rare cases, however, preserved gut contents provide direct evidence of feeding strategy and species interaction. This is important in the reconstruction of food webs and energy flow through ancient ecosystems. The Early Cretaceous Chinese Jehol Biota has yielded several such examples, with lizards, birds, small dinosaurs, and mammals as both predator and prey. Here we describe ...

Small theropod tracks, ichnogenus Minisauripus, from the Jinju Formation (Cretaceous) of Korea reveal exquisitely preserved skin texture impressions. This is the first report for any dinosaur of skin traces that cover entire footprints, and every footprint in a trackway. Special sedimentological conditions allowed footprint registration without smearing of skin texture patterns which consist of densely-packed, reticulate arrays of small ( 80% of tracks <3.0 cm long, Minisauripus is pivotal in de...

Over the last three years, Burmese amber (~99 Ma, from Myanmar) has provided a series of immature enantiornithine skeletal remains preserved in varying developmental stages and degrees of completeness. These specimens have improved our knowledge based on compression fossils in Cretaceous sedimentary rocks, adding details of three-dimensional structure and soft tissues that are rarely preserved elsewhere. Here we describe a remarkably well-preserved foot, accompanied by part of the wing plumage. ...

Abstract We analyzed identified oospecies and associated geochemical characteristics of newly discovered dinosaur eggs from the Cretaceous Hekou Formation in Yudu District, Jiangxi Province, China. Results reveal that the Yudu eggs can be identified as representatives of the known oospecies Macroolithus rugustus within Elongatoolithidae based on external shape, size, ornamentation, and internal microstructure between the columnar and cone layers. The major element found in Macroolithus rugustus ...

Abstract Two small assemblages of turtle swim tracks from the Hekou Group, Gansu Province, represent the sixth and seventh reports of turtle tracks from the Cretaceous of China. One assemblage from Liujiaxia Dinosaur National Geopark, with seven tracks, is interpreted to represent a partial trackway with a few isolated tracks, and another one with six tracks from the Fangtai site is interpreted to represent turtle swim tracks, including one inferred manus pes set. At least five turtle body fossi...

Abstract The morphology of fossil footprints is the basis of vertebrate footprint ichnology. However, the processes acting during and after trace fossil registration which are responsible for the final morphology have never been precisely defined, resulting in a dearth of nomenclature. Therefore, we discuss the concepts of ichnotaphonomy, ichnostratinomy, taphonomy, biostratinomy, registration and diagenesis and describe the processes acting on footprint morphology. In order to evaluate the morp...

ABSTRACTType specimens of the sauropod ichnotaxon Chuxiongpus changlingensis, which was later reassigned to Brontopodus changlingensis, as well as the theropod ichnotaxon Yunnanpus huangcaoensis, both from the Cretaceous Jiangdihe Formation of Yunnan Province, are redescribed in order to document their morphological features. Both, but particularly Y. huangcaoensis, which is considered now a nomen dubium, were originally based on poorly preserved material. Nevertheless, the specimens document a ...

The rapid rate of discovery of Lower Cretaceous tetrapod tracksites in terrestrial sequences on the Sichuan Basin area is such that the 2016 report of 21 sites in the Xiaoba, Feitianshan and Jiaguan Formations is now increased by ∼24%–26 sites. Of these seven occur in the Xiaoba Formation, including two new sites (Luogan and Apuruha) described here. Likewise, there has been a similar increase in reports of sites from the Jiaguan Formation, from 12 to 15 sites (=25%) in the same period. The total...
