Key-words. - Turtle, Geoemydidae, Eocene, China, Guangdong province. Abstract. - The fossil record of testudinoid turtles of China during the Eocene-Oligocene is poorly documented. The Maoming basin is one of the few Paleogene basin in southern China having yielded a rich turtle fauna including Trionychidae, Carettochelyidae and Geoemydidae (Testudinoidea). Testudinoids were known in this basin by a single, supposed aquatic species, Isometremys lacuna CHOW and YEH, 1962. The examination of the… 
A new testudinoid turtle from the middle to late Eocene of Vietnam
TLDR
This is the first time that a large sample of fossil testudinoids has its morphological variation described in detail and can be inferred with confidence to be a new taxon.
A new brontothere from the Eocene of South China
TLDR
A new brontotheriid perissodactyl from the Youganwo Formation of China is reported on, characterized by the combination of a simple P4 without a hypocone with derived molars having large molar fossae and large anterolingual cingular cusp.
A new amynodontid from the Eocene of South China and phylogeny of Amynodontidae (Perissodactyla: Rhinocerotoidea)
Cadurcodon maomingensis sp. nov. is described based on a partial skull and associated vertebrae from the middle–upper Eocene Youganwo Formation in the Maoming Basin, Guangdong Province, China. The
The phylogenetic relationships of geoemydid turtles from the Eocene Messel Pit Quarry: a first assessment using methods for continuous and discrete characters
TLDR
This work uses continuous characters in the form of ratios to estimate the placement of the Messel geoemydids in a reference tree that was estimated from molecular data, and explores the placement error obtained from that data with maximum likelihood and Bayesian methods, as well as linear parsimony in combination with discrete characters.
Estimating the phylogeny of geoemydid turtles (Cryptodira) from landmark data: an assessment of different methods
TLDR
This work explores the use of continuous data in the form of 3D coordinates of homologous landmarks on the turtle shell for phylogenetic inference and the phylogenetic placement of single species on a scaffold molecular tree.
Na Duong (northern Vietnam) – an exceptional window into Eocene ecosystems from Southeast Asia
TLDR
The strong biogeographic link between the Eocene mammal faunas from Na Duong and Europe highlights the importance of Southeast Asia as a source region for trans-continental mammal dispersal along the northern Tethys margin.
A new alligatoroid (Eusuchia, Crocodylia) from the Eocene of China and its implications for the relationships of Orientalosuchina
Abstract. A new crocodylian, Dongnanosuchus hsui n. gen. n. sp., is described mainly based on four well-preserved skulls from the Eocene Youganwo Formation of the Maoming Basin, southeastern China.
Anthracotheriid artiodactyl Anthracokeryx and an upper Eocene age for the Youganwo Formation of southern China
Abstract The two recently collected mammalian dentary fragments from the Eocene Youganwo Formation of Guangdong Province, southern China, are referred to the anthracotheriid species Anthracokeryx
The First ‘True’ Adocus (Testudines, Adocidae) from the Paleogene of Asia
TLDR
The study indicates that the evolutionary and biogeographic history of the Adocidae was more complicated than considered previously, including previously unrecognized dispersal events between Asia and North America.

Preliminary report on Southeast Asia’s Oldest Cenozoic Turtle Fauna from the Late Middle Eocene Pondaung Formation, Myanmar
TLDR
The Pondaung turtle fauna is one of the best known of its age from Southeast Asia but comparisons with the limited literature of the Eocene faunas from China, Mongolia, and the Indiansubcontinent indicate it is probably biogeographically unique.

The phylogenetic position of the recently rediscovered Philippine forest turtle (Bataguridae: Heosemys leytensis)
TLDR
Parsimony and likelihood analyses of mitochondrial and nuclear DNA data strongly support H. leytensis as the sister taxon to the Southeast Asian species Siebenrockiella crassicollis (commonly known as the ‘black marsh turtle’ or ‘smiling terrapin’).

Multiple data sets, high homoplasy, and the phylogeny of softshell turtles (Testudines: Trionychidae).
TLDR
A strong estimate of the phylogeny of softshell turtles is used as the basis for a novel rank-free classification, and strategies for analyzing highly homoplasious mtDNA data in deep phylogenetic problems where increased taxon sampling is not an option are examined.
