Abstract: A curious blunt-toed tridactyl footprint of a relatively large trackmaker is stored in the Geological Museum in Copenhagen. The footprint was found nearly 50 years ago in the Rhaetian coal-bearing strata mined in the Gustav Adolf Mine, near Höganäs, Scania, Southern Sweden. The morphology of the specimen suggests that it was left by an early advanced thyreophoran dinosaur, in this case the earliest known.
