Changmachelys bohlini gen. et sp. nov., from the Lower Cretaceous Xiagou Formation, Changma Basin, north-western Gansu Province, adds to our understanding of the diversity and distribution of Early Cretaceous turtles in Asia. Changmachelys bohlini is similar to Early Cretaceous turtles from Asia included in “Macrobaenidae” in having a low domed carapace and a reduced, cruciform plastron with buttresses that do not extend onto the costals. With a carapace that exceeds 34 cm in length, it is one… 
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.
Presence of the Jehol Biota turtle Ordosemys liaoxiensis in the Early Cretaceous Hengtongshan Formation of southern Jilin Province, China
Abstract. Recently, a vertebrate assemblage of the Jehol Biota has been reported from the Early Cretaceous Hengtongshan Formation of Xingling Town, Meihekou City, Jilin Province, China. It is

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
An exceptionally well-preserved herbaceous eudicot from the Early Cretaceous (late Aptian–early Albian) of Northwest China
TLDR
In general organization, Gansufructus is closely similar to the fruit-bearing axes of Sinocarpus decussatus from the Early Cretaceous Jehol Biota, as well as other more or less contemporaneous angiosperms from the Far East, which together provide evidence of diverse eudicot angios perms of low stature colonizing areas close to environments of deposition.
A juvenile turtle (Testudines, Eucryptodira) from the Upper Jurassic of Langenberg Quarry, Oker, Northern Germany
TLDR
The ossification pattern of the carapace of this eucryptodire turtle resembles that of known Jurassic paracryptodires and thus provides new insights to the ontogeny of Jurassic turtles.
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.
Kalasinemys, a new xinjiangchelyid turtle from the Late Jurassic of NE Thailand
Abstract A new xinjiangchelyid turtle, Kalasinemys prasarttongosothi n. gen. n. sp., is described on the basis of skull and shell material from the Upper Jurassic Phu Kradung Formation at Phu Noi
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.

Kappachelys okurai gen. et sp. nov., a New Stem Soft-Shelled Turtle from the Early Cretaceous of Japan
TLDR
This work interprets Kappachelys as a stem trionychid, a small turtle that exhibits a unique combination of three features: coarse and deep vermiculate sculpture on carpace; no scute sulci; and well-developed peripherals, and believes it could be ancestral to thetrionychids of the Kitadani Formation.
