Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
W. A. S. Sarjeant et al. 1998Tridactyl pedal imprints of a dinosaur, semidigitigrade, all three digits being of similar length. Central digit (in) directed forward and approximating to an equilateral triangle in shape. Digits n and IV directed almost laterally; they are somewhat less broad and have the form of isosceles triangles with rounded to sub-acute distal ends. Posterior of sole smoothly curved or very slightly flattened. Claws not defined. Trackway narrow: stride long.
I. Díaz-Martínez et al. 2015Tracks belonging to Iguanodontipodidae with a small heel impression that is rounded, centred and narrow (as wide as the width of the proximal part of the digit III impression); long, narrow digit impressions with sharp distal ends.
