Which was only brought up because of a talk and paper in the The Contental 
Jurassic Symposium by Gerard Gierlinski, 1996. Feather-like Impressions in a 
Theropod Resting Trace from the Lower Jurassic of Masschusetts. The C
ontinental Jurassic. Michael Morales, ed., Museum of Northern Arizona Bulletin 
60: 179-184.

It is from an Eubrontes pes prints, both feet, and a pubis print? To 
Gierlinski there seems to be feather prints from a sliding print.

Also the track maker is dubious. It might not be from an ornithischian.

Paul Olsen dosen't believe him as do some others.
