Inhoud: Several morphological varieties of trace fossils abound in Middle and Late Triassic fluvial redbeds in the Pranhita-Godavari Valley, south India, including Skolithos, Palaeophycus, Taenidium, escape burrows, and a type of trace very similar to 'small stuffed burrows' from the Triassic of Greenland. Burrow morphology was influenced by local hydrodynamic conditions. The distribution of burrows was facies controlled; some forms are restricted to channel deposits whereas others occur only in floodplains. Vertical dwelling burrows (Skolithos) occur in both channel and floodplain deposits. Horizontal structures representing deposit feeding (Taenidium) are confined to nondepositional surfaces within parallel-laminated sandstones having parting lineations that represent catastrophically emplaced sand-sheets in channels and proximal floodplains. Vertical escape burrows are confined to what were slowly but continually accreting parallel-laminated sands of channel bars. Horizontal dwelling burrows (Palaeophycus) and 'small stuffed burrows' are virtually restricted to the smaller sandsheets of floodplain drainage systems. The burrow assemblages do not occur as recurrent associations throughout the redbed sequence, and variations in different stratigraphic levels seem to be controlled by minor differences within a broadly similar environment. The entire assemblage has components of both the Scoyenia and Rusophycus ichnocoenoses reported from East Greenland but may be considered as the Scoyenia ichnofacies characteristic of redbeds deposited in extensive floodplains dissected by small streams, even though no Scoyenia individuals are present.
