In the Hettangian/Sinemurian deposits of the Komló area (Mecsek Mountain, Hungary), footprints of Jurassic dinosaurs assigned to the ichnospecies Komlosaurus carbonis are more or less the only published palaeontological data of this region. In this upper part of the middle coal seam set dinosaur footprints were found. The footprints, which form tracks, occur in several levels on bedding planes of fine-grained sediments.[1][2][3][4] GNI TDWG The biggest occurrence of fossils are at the Karolina and Vasas strip mines in the Mecsek Mountain nearby Pécs.
