ABSTRACT
Bioturbated, glauconitic siltstones and sandstones are overlain by presumed Upper Triassic deposits at coastal exposures at Julegård on the south coast of Bornholm. These glauconitic deposits have not previously been dated. A 40Ar-39Ar dating of the glaucony gives an age of 493 ± 2 Ma suggesting the deposits belong to the Lower Cambrian Norretorp Member of the Læså Formation. The shallow marine deposits are strongly bioturbated, but only a single ichnoassociation is represented. The ichnogenus is referable to either Trichophycus Miller and Dyer, 1878 or Teichichnus Seilacher, 1955. Rare examples of Rusophycus Hall, 1852, probably trilobite trace fossils, are also represented.
