Abstract

Trace fossils are recorded for the first time from the Upper Triassic Molteno Formation of the Karoo (Gondwana) Supergroup in Lesotho. The Molteno forms an intracratonic clastic wedge, comprising a series of fining-upward sequences deposited by braided streams. The traces are possibly surface gastropod or bivalve trails and have been tentatively assigned to the ichnogenus Scolicia, recording the first example of such traces from ancient fluvial sediments.
