Abstract New Palatobaena material from the Hell Creek Formation (Maastrichtian), including the first skull and shell association, from southwestern North Dakota represents a new species named herein Palatobaena cohen. The material consists of 4 skulls, 2 lower jaws, and 2 shells and represents a true biological population (spatially and temporally restricted), which provides unprecedented access to ontogenetic and other intraspecific variation found in this taxon. The skull's round shape and… 
A New Baenid Turtle from the Upper Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) Hell Creek Formation of North Dakota and a Preliminary Taxonomic Review of Cretaceous Baenidae
TLDR
A fragmentary skull from the Hell Creek Formation of southwestern North Dakota represents a new taxon of baenid turtle named herein Gamerabaena sonsalla, which has several morphological features that are intermediate between Plesiobaena antiqua and the morphologically disparate Palatobaena spp.
A Revision of Plesiobaena (Testudines: Baenidae) and an Assessment of Baenid Ecology Across the K/T Boundary
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis clearly reveals that Plesiobaena in the traditional sense is a paraphyletic assemblage relative to the clade formed by Gamerabaena sonsalla and Palatobaena spp.
A New Baenid Turtle, Palatobaena knellerorum sp. nov., from the Lower Paleocene (Danian) Denver Formation of South-Central Colorado, U.S.A.
ABSTRACT Baenidae are the most diverse clade of turtles from the latest Cretaceous and earliest Paleogene of North America. Palatobaena species have a distinctive cranial bauplan within baenid
A New Species of Baenid Turtle from the Kaiparowits Formation (Upper Cretaceous, Campanian) of Southern Utah
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.
Morphological variation, phylogenetic relationships, and geographic distribution of the Baenidae (Testudines), based on new specimens from the Uinta Formation (Uinta Basin), Utah (USA)
TLDR
New baenids from the Uintan NALMA provide valuable insight into the morphology and evolution of the diverse and speciose baenid family near the end of its extensive radiation, just prior to the disappearance of this clade from the fossil record.
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
TLDR
A new species of trionychid is described, Axestemys infernalis sp.
A new European Late Jurassic pleurosternid (Testudines, Paracryptodira) and a new hypothesis of paracryptodiran phylogeny
TLDR
The new phylogenetic proposal, and its analysis in view of stratigraphical distributions, shows that Baenidae was a clade of turtles only known in the Cretaceous and Palaeogene of the North American record but that Pleurosternidae and Compsemydidae were distributed both in North America and Europe.
New Cranial Material of Gilmoremys lancensis (Testudines, Trionychidae) from the Hell Creek Formation of Southeastern Montana, U.S.A.
ABSTRACT Plastomenidae is a speciose clade of soft-shelled turtles (Trionychidae) known from Campanian to Eocene deposits throughout western North America. We here describe two large skulls from
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 Creek
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.

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.
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.
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.

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 recognize
A NEW EUBAENINE, GOLEREMYS MCKENNAI, GEN. ET SP. N., (BAENIDAE: TESTUDINES) FROM THE PALEOCENE OF CALIFORNIA
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.
The skull of Neurankylus eximius (Testudines: Baenidae) and a reinterpretation of the relationships of this taxon
TLDR
The skull of the primitive baenid turtle Neurankylus demonstrates that it is distinct from Hayemys and is a primitive relative to the Baenodd, which is a monophyletic taxon including Baenidae and Pleurosternidae.

TLDR
Study of these shows the presence of several new species of turtles, and other well-preserved specimens contribute to a better understanding of forms previously known.
