Re: Swimming Dinosaurs, 1980
Here is a list of other papers dealing with dinosaur swim tracks, or at
least in part. Particularly important is Whyte and Romano, 2003 where they
describe an new ichnogenus and species, _Charachichnos tridactylus_. Much
more to come on Late Triassic phytosaur swim tracks and Early Jurassic
dinosaur and crocodylian swim tracks from Utah within the next year ....

Subject: Re: Swimming Dinosaurs, 1980
I am just back from the International Symposium on dinosaur paleoichnology
at Fumanya (Catalunya) where I participated also to the field trip to La
Rioja province of Spain. Felix Perez-Lorente has shown us some Early
Cretaceous footprints of swimming theropods in a site of La Rioja.
There is much more evidence in recent literature of swimming dinosaur
footprints, but you must search seriously for it. Contact specialists like
Gerard Gierlinsky (firstname.lastname@example.org), Martin Lockley
just to cite few of them.
Just a suggestion.
