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.

“…The ichnological record of the Ankylosauria is relatively sparse, until now about 20 localities with purported ankylosaur trackways have been reported worldwide (Currie, 1989;McCrea, 2000McCrea, , 2003McCrea et al, 2001;Gangloff et al, 2004;Weems, 2004;Gierliński et al, 2005;Goldring et al, 2005;Stanford et al, 2007;Tanke and Newman, 2007;Xing et al, 2007;McCrea and Buckley, 2008;Sacchi et al, 2009;Petti et al, 2010;Apesteguía and Gallina, 2011). Although the oldest tracks tentatively referred to a thyreophoran trackmaker originate from the uppermost Triassic of Sweden (Milàn and Gierliński, 2004), the record of purported ankylosaur tracks does not increase reasonably before the beginning of the Cretaceous (McCrea et al, 2001).…”
