Main Article Content

Edmund A. Jarzembowski


The feeding trace Phagophytichnus ekowskii VAN AMEROM, 1966 is recorded on Taeniopteris carnotii ZEILLER, 1888, a cycadopsid leaf, from the Lika mudstone (Upper Kasimovian-Gzhelian) of Croatia. The distribution and occurrence of this ichnogenus and species are discussed and comparison made with occurrences on Taeniopteris angustifolia (SCHENK, 1927) in the Upper Landinian of Germany. Recent analogues are considered of the possible producer and an orthopteroid insect is suggested.
