These do not resemble any similar-sized ichnites from the other basins of the Newark Supergroup but are similar to Permian tetrapod ichnotaxa such as Dimetropus or Hyloidichnus in being markedly asymmetrical, with medially curved and expanded distal digit imprints.
These ichnites are very similar to those from the lower and middle Passaic Formation in the Newark basin of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and several could be conspecific.
The ichnites are assigned to two well known ichnospecies (Pt.
The study of these tracks and their potential trackmaker suggest that: a) The diagnosis of the ichnogenus Pteraichnus should be amended because it reflects the general description of all virtually existing pterosaur ichnites; b) pterosaurs could move occasionally putting all their weight just on their toes.
These two footprints represent the youngest known occurrence of dinosaur ichnites in the Newark Supergroup (P.
This episode could be coeval with the deposition of the Hardegsen Formation, where the evidence of biological activity (ichnites, rhizolites and palynomorphs) rules out any correlation with the "Conglomerat principal" Fm.
