Megaloolithus dinosaur nest from the Lameta Formation of Salbardi
area, districts Amravati, Maharashtra and Betul, Madhya Pradesh.

The present paper contributes the new locality of a nest of sauropod
dinosaur from fluvial sediments of the Lameta Formation of Salbardi
area. On the basis of shape, size and microstructures of the shell, it
is identified as Megaloolithus. The new locality is away from the
known nesting sites of dinosaurs already been reported i.e., Nagpur
and Jabalpur, therefore bears significance in reconstruction of
palaeogeographic boundary of dinosaurs-nesting sites.
