Osteology, Relationships, and Ecology of Annemys (Testudines, Eucryptodira) from the Late Jurassic of Shar Teg, Mongolia, and Phylogenetic Definitions for Xinjiangchelyidae, Sinemydidae, and Macrobaenidae
The overall similarity of the shells of the two Annemys species combined with significant differences in the skull indicate that these turtles probably partitioned the aquatic niche by exploring different feeding strategies and implies a moderate level of ecological diversification among Late Jurassic Asian turtles.

The sinemydid turtle Ordosemys from the Lower Cretaceous Mengyin Formation of Shandong, China and its implication for the age of the Luohandong Formation of the Ordos Basin
The presence of the sinemydid turtle Ordosemys leios from the Lower Cretaceous Mengyin Formation of Shandong Province, China is recorded and ecomorphological analysis of limb proportions implies that it was a less capable swimmer compared to Ordosemy liaoxiensis coming from the younger Jehol Biota.
