To my knowledge living lungfish do not actually crawl about on land, and therefore leave no tracks. I have no idea what their predecessors might have done...

Yes - it's more of a squirm than a walk, which wouldn't leave any nice neat tracks (since the undulating body would obliterate what little impressions the fins made).

Well, that's still a track of sorts, yes? And indicative of a lungfish?
