Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
M. G. Lockley et al. 1995Narrow sauropod trackway of medium to large size (footprint length about 50–90 cm), characterized by no space between trackway midline and inside margin of pes tracks. Pes footprint longer than wide with long axis rotated outward. Pes claw impressions, corresponding to digit s I, II and III show strong outward rotation. Manus tracks semicircular and small in comparison with pes tracks (i.e. pronounced heteropody).
