Taxonomic remark From Wisshak et al., 2019: Heterodontichnites Rinehart et al., 2006, with its type species H. hunti Rinehart et al., 2006, was supposed to differ from Mandaodonites coxi Cruickshank, 1986 by alleged round tooth traces of the latter and a more curved pattern. Owing to the incomplete preservation of the single specimen with Heterodontichnites, the latter difference cannot be substantiated, whereas the single tooth traces of Mandaodonites are ovoid, as in Heterodontichnites. With no significant difference remaining, the two ichnogenera and their type ichnospecies are respectively synonymized. [details]
