Explanation:
Η λέξη αυτή προέρχεται από τη γερμανική λέξη teich που σημαίνει λίμνη (αν και υπάρχει και στα "γερμανοεβραϊκά" γίντις και σημαίνει ποταμός).

Στα ελληνικά δεν το έχω βρει πουθενά και θα διακινδυνεύσω να σου προτείνω να το αφήσεις ως έχει. Η βικιπαίδεια έχει ένα ωραίο αρθράκι για τα απολιθώματα αυτά. Παραθέτω: "Teichichnus has a distinctive form produced by the stacking of thin 'tongues' of sediment, atop one another. They are again believed to be fodinichnia, with the organism adopting the habit of retracing the same route through varying heights of the sediment, which would allow it to avoid going over the same area. These 'tongues' are often quite sinuous, reflecting perhaps a more nutrient-poor environment in which the feeding animals had to cover a greater area of sediment, in order to acquire sufficient nourishment."

Και από το answers.com παραθέτω τη προέλευση της λέξης teich:
"Teich (onomastics)
Onomastics and disambiguational information about Teich:
טײַךְ taykh means river in Modern Yiddish language.
However, German Teich means pond."

Και φυσικά το ichnus είναι από την ελληνική λέξη ίχνος. Παραθέτω και από το ίδιο άρθρο από τη Βικιπαίδεια:
"Trace fossils, also called ichnofossils (IPA: /ˈɪknəʊˌfɒsəl/, Greek: ιχνος or ikhnos, meaning "trace" or "track") are structures preserved in sedimentary rocks that record biological activity. While we are most familiar with relatively spectacular, fossilized hard-part remains such as shells and bones (known as body fossils), trace fossils are often less dramatic, but nonetheless very important."
