A new species of Sinemys (Testudines: Cryptodira: Sinemydidae), S. brevispinus n. sp. is described on the basis of three skeletons from the Early Cretaceous Luohandong Formation, Chabu Sumu, Ordos Basin, Inner Mongolia. The new taxon is characterised by an elongate carapace with a pair of distinct but short lateral spines, a sculptured shell surface, closed lateral carapacial fontanelles and an open incisura columellae auris. A nearly complete turtle skeleton from the Early Cretaceous of… 
Osteology, Relationships, and Ecology of Annemys (Testudines, Eucryptodira) from the Late Jurassic of Shar Teg, Mongolia, and Phylogenetic Definitions for Xinjiangchelyidae, Sinemydidae, and Macrobaenidae
TLDR
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.

Taxonomic position of Oxemys gutta Nessov, 1977, a problematic turtle from the Upper Cretaceous of Uzbekistan, and basisphenoid morphology in some groups of Late Mesozoic turtles of Asia
TLDR
The analysis of possible associations of O. gutta with shell-based turtle taxa known from the Khodzhakul Formation suggests that it most likely belongs to Macrobaenidae/Sinemydidae.
A new specimen of Manchurochelys manchoukuoensis from the Early Cretaceous Jehol Biota of Chifeng, Inner Mongolia, China and the phylogeny of Cretaceous basal eucryptodiran turtles
TLDR
A new specimen of Manchurochelys manchoukuoensis is described from the Jiufotang Formation of Qilinshan, Chifeng, Inner Mongolia, China, adding to the understanding of the morphology of this taxon and inviting a thorough revision of the phylogeny of Macrobaenidae, Sinemydidae, and closely allied forms.
Revision of the Triassic European turtles Proterochersis and Murrhardtia (Reptilia, Testudinata, Proterochersidae), with the description of new taxa from Poland and Germany
TLDR
New discovered plesiomorphic aspects of the anatomy of these three species included in the phylogenetic analysis demonstrate that they are not only the oldest, but are also the most basal fully shelled turtles.
Yakemys multiporcata n. g. n. sp., a Large Macrobaenid Turtle from the Basal Cretaceous of Thailand, with a Review of the Turtle Fauna from the Phu Kradung Formation and Its Stratigraphical Implications
Yakemys multiporcata n. g. n. sp. is described on the basis of shell elements from the upper part of the Phu Kradung Formation (basal Cretaceous), Khorat Plateau, NE Thailand and assigned to
A Reassessment of the Late Jurassic Turtle Eurysternum wagleri (Eucryptodira, Eurysternidae)
TLDR
Based on the rare, only known illustration of the lost holotype and on the reassessment of select individuals, the species E. wagleri is recharacterized herein.
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
TLDR
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.
Hyperphalangy in a new sinemydid turtle from the Early Cretaceous Jehol Biota
TLDR
A new freshwater turtle is reported from the Early Cretaceous Jehol Biota of western Liaoning, China, characterized by a hyperphalangy condition with one additional phalanx in pedal digit V, rather than the primitive condition of crown turtles.
