  author={Andreas T. Matzke and Michael W. Maisch and Sun Ge and Hans-Ulrich Pfretzschner and Henrik St{\"o}hr},
A new eucryptodiran turtle, Xinjiangchelys qiguensis sp. nov. from the Upper Jurassic (Oxfordian — ?Kimmeridgian) Qigu Formation of the southern Junggar Basin (north‐west China) is described. The type material consists of a partial skeleton, including the complete carapace, plastron, nearly all cervical vertebrae, both scapulae, the pelvis and one ulna. It is clearly identifiable as a basal eucryptodire since it lacks the mesoplastron. It is distinguished from other species of Xinjiangchelys by…

A relict trematosauroid (Amphibia: Temnospondyli) from the Middle Jurassic of the Junggar Basin (NW China)
The Trematosauroidea, which was hitherto exclusively known from the Lower to early Upper Triassic, therefore joins the Brachyopoidea – and possibly the Capitosauroidesa – as another group of temnospondyls which survived the end-Triassic mass extinction.

The Origin of Genera
ALTHOUGH it is now two years since the publication of Prof. Cope's “fragmentary essay,”as he modestly terms it, bearing the above title, it may not be out of place, in the present stage of the theory
