Abstract Turtles of the total clade Pan-Chelydridae have a relatively sparse fossil record that reaches back to the Late Cretaceous (Santonian). The clade was only present in North America during the Cretaceous but spread along unclear routes to Asia and Europe during the Paleocene, only to go extinct on those continents by the end of the Pliocene. Final dispersal to South America took place at some time during the late Neogene. The ecology of stem chelydrids seems to have been similar to that… 

A Review of the Fossil Record of Turtles of the Clade Pan-Kinosternoidea

Turtles of the total clade Pan-Kinosternoidea have a relatively poor fossil record that extends back to the Late Cretaceous, and a taxonomic review of the group concludes that of 42 named taxa, 27 are nomina valida, including two species of the controversial taxon Planetochelys.

Abstract Turtles of the clade Pan-Trionychidae have a rich fossil record in the Old World, ranging from the Early Cretaceous (Hauterivian) to the Holocene. The clade most probably originated in Asia

A toothed turtle from the Late Jurassic of China and the global biogeographic history of turtles

A revision of the global distribution of fossil and recent turtle reveals that the three primary lineages of derived, aquatic turtles, including the crown, Paracryptodira, Pan-Pleurodira, and Pan-Cryptodira can be traced back to the Middle Jurassic of Euramerica, Gondwana, and Asia, respectively, which resulted from the primary break up of Pangaea at that time.

ABSTRACT The European Paleocene terrestrial and freshwater turtle fauna is radically different from that in the Upper Cretaceous. This Paleocene fauna is largely formed by groups of turtles not found

A new phylogenetic hypothesis of turtles with implications for the timing and number of evolutionary transitions to marine lifestyles in the group

A new phylogenetic hypothesis informed by high resolution computed tomographic data of living and fossil taxa is presented, indicating three independent evolutionary transitions to marine life in non‐pleurodiran turtles (plus an additional two‐three in pleurodires).

Reassessment of the phylogenetic interrelationships of basal turtles (Testudinata)

Perhaps the most salient conclusion of the present study is the placement of Naomichelys speciosa as a basal member of a clade uniting meiolaniids, Mongolochelys efremovi and Otwayemys cunicularius.

Phylogenetic Relationships of Mesozoic Turtles

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.
