Minute light, occasionally branching, tape-like or spot-like traces were found on various substrates (silicites, greywackes, phosphatic crusts, coprolites, shark teeth, concretions, intraclasts) joined with the lower Turonian nearshore facies of the Bohemian Cretaceous basin. They are interpreted as Late Pleistocene to Holocene corrosive root traces.
