Abstract

Two new small tridactyl dinosaur tracks are found in the Middle Jurassic Bagå Formation of Bornholm and are interpreted as ornithopodian in origin. A skeletal fragment is identified as a crocodilian skull fragment. Previous finds of dinosaur tracks from the locality consist of two sizes of sauropods, a medium sized theropod and thyreophorans. The addition of tracks from ornithopod dinosaurs and skeletal evidence of crocodilians now give a broader picture of a diverse Middle Jurassic vertebrate fauna. This is an important addition to the understanding of the terrestrial Mesozoic ecosystem of Denmark, and a valuable addition to the scarce Middle Jurassic vertebrate record of Europe.
