Abstract

Trace fossils are common in the shallow marine sandstones of the Lower Jurassic Neill Klinter Formation, East Greenland. Thirty-four ichnospecies (4 new) are referred to 29 ichnogenera (1 new). The new forms are Jamesonichnites heinbergi (n. igen., n. isp.); Parahaentzschelinia surlyki (n. isp.), Phycodes Auduni (n. isp.) and Phycodes bromleyi (n. isp.). Where possible each ichnogenus is interpreted in the light of its trophic and ethological properties and related to a particular group of organisms. -Author
