Sorry, no etymologies found.
If the Stegopodus pedal specimen we propose to shift the emphasis from the manus to the pes in the revised diagnosis of this ichnotaxon and similar ichnites are proper stegosaur footprints, Deltapodus must have been left by another thyreophoran trackmaker.
Isolated pedal ichnites from the Morrison Formation (with a single tentatively associated manus print, and another one from Poland) and the only known trackways with similar footprints (Upper Jurassic of Asturias, Spain) imply bipedal gait of their trackmakers.
