Although Hitchcock believed that he was describing fossilized algae or seaweeds (fucoids), his observations revealed nearly all the diagnostic characteristics of the ichnogenus; in particular, the meniscate nature of its backfilling. Today...

... Abstract At present, three continental archetypal ichnofacies are widely accepted: the Scoyenia, Mermia and Coprinisphaera ichnofacies. The last is present in palaeosols, and the first two occur in fluvio-lacustrine environments. Additionally, the Skolithos ichnofacies may be present...
