ABSTRACT A fragmentary skull from the Hell Creek Formation (Maastrichtian) of southwestern North Dakota represents a new taxon of baenid turtle named herein Gamerabaena sonsalla. The length of the frontals, jugal contribution to the labial ridge, and convex contact between the vomer and the pterygoids indicate its affinities with the clade Palatobaena, but the new taxon clearly lacks the great posterior expansion of the triturating surface, complete absence of a lingual ridge, subrectangular… Expand

TLDR
New baenid turtle specimens from the middle Campanian Kaiparowits Formation of southern Utah are described herein as a new taxon, Arvinachelys goldeni, gen. et sp. Expand
A New Baenid Turtle, Saxochelys gilberti, gen. et sp. nov., from the Uppermost Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) Hell Creek Formation: Sexual Dimorphism and Spatial Niche Partitioning within the Most Speciose Group of Late Cretaceous Turtles
ABSTRACT The uppermost Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) Hell Creek Formation in North America has yielded a diverse assemblage of fossil turtles dominated by baenids. A population of over 30 individualExpand
A new species of trionychid turtle, Axestemys infernalis sp. nov., from the Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) Hell Creek and Lance formations of the Northern Great Plains, USA
The Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) Hell Creek and Lance formations in the states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, and Wyoming, USA, have yielded rich remains of trionychid turtles, but theExpand
A new species of baenid turtle from the Early Cretaceous Lakota Formation of South Dakota
Abstract. Baenidae is a clade of paracryptodiran turtles known from the late Early Cretaceous to Eocene of North America. The proposed sister-group relationship of Baenidae to Pleurosternidae, aExpand
A new baenid turtle from the early Paleocene (Torrejonian) of New Mexico and a species-level phylogenetic analysis of Baenidae
TLDR
A nearly complete species-level analysis of baenids confirms the basal placement of Neurankylus outside of Baenodda and the split of Baensodda into two primary subclades, herein named Palatobaeninee and Eubaeninae. Expand
BAENID (BAENIDAE: TESTUDINES) LOWER JAWS FROM THE LATE CRETACEOUS AND PALEOCENE OF THE SAN JUAN BASIN, NEW MEXICO
Two isolated lower jaws belonging to different baenid turtles are identified as cf. Boremys grandis from the upper Campanian (Late Cretaceous) Kirtland Formation (De-na-zin Member) and cf.Expand
Baenid turtles of the Kaiparowits Formation (Upper Cretaceous: Campanian) of southern Utah, USA
I describe the assemblage of baenid turtles found in the Campanian Kaiparowits Formation of southern Utah and compare it with baenids from other basins across Laramidia. Baenids were one of the mostExpand
New pelomedusoid turtles from the late Palaeocene Cerrejón Formation of Colombia and their implications for phylogeny and body size evolution
TLDR
Results from the Cerrejón turtles demonstrate that at least two major subclades of Podocnemidae were already in place in the neotropics by the Early Cenozoic and suggests that climatic variation is not the primary driver of major body size changes. Expand
New Material of Gilmoremys lancensis nov. comb. (Testudines: Trionychidae) from the Hell Creek Formation and the Diagnosis of Plastomenid Turtles
Abstract Plastomenidae is a poorly diagnosed clade of extinct soft-shelled turtles (Trionychidae) known from the Campanian to Eocene of North America. Five skulls, a mandible, two carapaces, andExpand
Boremys (Testudines, Baenidae) from the Latest Cretaceous and Early Paleocene of North Dakota: An 11-Million-Year Range Extension and an Additional K/T Survivor
ABSTRACT For over a century, the baenid turtle Boremys has been recognized as being restricted to the Campanian of North America. Herein we describe new material of Boremys sp. from the Hell CreekExpand

A New Species of Palatobaena (Testudines: Baenidae) and a Maximum Parsimony and Bayesian Phylogenetic Analysis of Baenidae
TLDR
The baenid topology reveals a demonstrably homoplastic trend towards the reduction of the temporal emargination and unique thickening of the posterior portion of the parietals that corresponds with the K/T boundary and is hypothesized to have provided limited protection from increasingly effective mammalian predators.

Late Cretaceous and early Paleocene turtles of the Denver Basin, Colorado
The record of turtles in the Denver Basin spans four formations (Fox Hills, Laramie, Arapahoe, and Denver) that range from Late Cretaceous (Lancian) to early Paleocene (Puercan) in age. We recognizeExpand
ANATOMY AND SYSTEMATICS OF PLESIOBAENA ANTIQUA (TESTUDINES; BAENIDAE) FROM THE MID-CAMPANIAN JUDITH RIVER GROUP OF ALBERTA, CANADA
TLDR
New material from the mid-Campanian Judith River Group of Alberta, Canada, fully documents the skeleton in this species and provides evidence regarding variation within the taxon, suggesting that it was a member of a northern faunal assemblage. Expand
Patterns of geographic variation in latest Cretaceous vertebrates: Evidence from the turtle component
Turtles are among the most widespread, abundant, and diverse fossil vertebrate groups in the latest Cretaceous. On the basis of new data from the Hell Creek Formation (North Dakota) and Lance andExpand
Phylogenetic Relationships of Mesozoic Turtles
TLDR
This revised topology has important implications for the evolution of several character complexes, because it implies that the common ancestor of all living turtles must have had a partially braced brain case and a primitive trochlear mechanism. Expand
Anatomy and relationships of the turtle Boremys pulchra (Testudines: Baenidae)
TLDR
It is concluded that the derived characters of the carapace and plastron that had previously defined the Eubaeninae but are not present in Boremys have arisen independently within the subfamily. Expand

TLDR
The skull of a new turtle from the Tiffanian (Paleocene) of the Goler Formation, Kern County, California is the first confirmed baenid from the Pacific slope of North America and appears to be the sister taxon of those eubaenine genera. Expand
