The Buckland collection at the University of Oxford Museum of Natural History (UK) is the oldest collection of coprolites in the world. It comprises Mesozoic and Cenozoic coprolites and other bromalites, the majority of which are derived from the Lower Lias of southwestern England. The collection includes the most comprehensive samples of two important British coprofaunas – the Lower Liassic of Lyme Regis and the Rhaetic bone bed. We describe four new coprolite ichnotaxa from this collection: Ichthyosaurolites duffini ichnogen. et ichnosp. nov., Strabelocoprus pollardi ichnogen. et ichnosp. nov. and Plektecoprus whitbyensis ichnogen. et ichnosp. nov. from the Late Triassic and Early Liassic and Hyaenacoprus bucklandi ichnogen. et ichnosp. nov. from the Late Pleistocene.
