Abstract A new taxon of nanhsiungchelyid turtle, Jiangxichelys ganzhouensis n. g. n. sp., is described on the basis of a complete shell from the latest Cretaceous of Ganzhou, Jiangxi Province, China. It is close to Hanbodgemys, but different from the latter in having a boot-shaped second marginal scute reaching the first vertebral scute, a larger first suprapygal, a large fifth vertebral extending onto the tenth peripheral, narrower lateral marginal scutes and a narrower posterior plastral lobe… 
Large theropod teeth from the Upper Cretaceous of Jiangxi, southern China
Two isolated, large theropod teeth from the Upper Cretaceous Nanxiong Formation of Nankang County, Jiangxi Province, southern China, are described. Their crown heights (CH) are 76 and 91 mm,
New material of Jiangxichelys ganzhouensis Tong & Mo, 2010 (Testudines: Cryptodira: Nanhsiungchelyidae) and its phylogenetic and palaeogeographical implications
TLDR
The new material reveals more similarities between J. ganzhouensis and ‘Zangerlia’ neimongolensis; the latter species is included in the genus Jiangxichelys, and provides new evidence for weak physical barriers against the dispersal of land vertebrates between southern China and northern China and Mongolia during latest Cretaceous times.
Basilemys morrinensis, a New Species of Nanhsiungchelyid Turtle from the Horseshoe Canyon Formation (Upper Cretaceous) of Alberta, Canada
ABSTRACT We describe a new species of nanhsiungchelyid turtle, Basilemys morrinensis, based on a nearly complete shell from the Horsethief Member (lower Maastrichtian) of the Horseshoe Canyon

Turtle shell bone and osteoderm histology of Mesozoic and Cenozoic stem-trionychian Adocidae and Nanhsiungchelyidae (Cryptodira: Adocusia) from Central Asia, Mongolia, and North America
Abstract. The record of fossil turtles from the Cretaceous and Cenozoic of Asia and North America is very rich, including several lineages of cryptodiran turtles. Here we survey the shell bone

Zangerlia ukhaachelys, New Species, a Nanhsiungchelyid Turtle from the Late Cretaceous of Ukhaa Tolgod, Mongolia
TLDR
It is evident that the Late Cretaceous faunas of Asia and North America are closely related; however, phylogenetic considerations demonstrate that faunal exchange was limited for the Nanhsiungchelyidae.

The Description and Phylogenetic Position of a New Nanhsiungchelyid Turtle from the Late Cretaceous of Mongolia
TLDR
A new nanhsiungchelyid turtle is described based on two partial shells and additional shell fragments from the lower part of the Bainshire Formation of the Khara Khutul locality of Eastern Mongolia, showing that other localities have only a single representative of this clade, making Kharakhutulia kalandadzei a unique site.
The evolution of the lepidosaurian lower temporal bar: new perspectives from the Late Cretaceous of South China
TLDR
A unique combination of characters suggests that Tianyusaurus took food items requiring a large gape, and is shown to be a member of the Boreoteiioidea, a successful clade of large herbivorous lizards that were dispersed through eastern Asia, Europe and North America in the Late Cretaceous, but disappeared in the end-Cretaceous extinction.

A Pair of Shelled Eggs Inside A Female Dinosaur
TLDR
The orientations of the eggs inside the skeleton and in clutches indicate that the mother came to the center of the nest to lay eggs, suggesting that an entire egg clutch was laid through multiple ovipositions.
