Taxonomy
Sauroidichnites deweyi was named by Hitchcock (1843). It is considered to be a form taxon. Its type specimen is AC 26/5, 26/6, a footprint, and it is a trace fossil. Its type locality is below Turners Falls, tracksite, which is in a Hettangian/Sinemurian fluviallacustrine sandstone/shale in the Portland Formation of Massachusetts. It is the type species of Batrachopus, Anisichnus.
