Hi all, I have a pair of dino tracks. The left one is a Grallator sp. from the Connecticut River Valley. The right one is an Anomoepus scambus from Granby, Massachusetts. I've been trying to figure out their formation. I know they come from the Newark Supergroup. I would like to narrow it down. Do they come from the Portland Formation?
Eubrontes: Dilophosaurus ? Raised relief (footprint coated to stand out). 200 mya Triassic Erving, Massachusetts . Connecticut River valley. Clay sandstone **Sadly, something smudged the tip of the middle toe while still wet, and ruined the beautiful claw mark. Heel to middle claw tip = 10", & from tip of right claw to top of left claw = 8". The 2 main types you commonly see are Eubrontes and Grallator, but Eubrontes is different, as it is apparently understood to be pretty much dilophosaurus footprints. (Citation???) I know there are probably sometimes others' footprints that will fall under the name, but it seems to be to the point of Eubrontes almost being synonymous with dilophosaurus. (Citation???) I KNOW I'm going to take flak for labeling this as just "dilophosaur", and I understand why, but all in all, in this case I feel completely comfortable and safe using the name without a qualifier. I'm very sorry to all who are bothered and annoyed by it
