ABSTRACT This paper describes a new species of the genus Adocus (A. inexpectatus, sp. nov.), based on an almost complete shell from the upper Eocene Youganwo (= Youkanwo) Formation of the Maoming Basin, China. The inclusion of A. inexpectatus in a phylogenetic analysis of Adocusia resulted in a polytomy with Adocus aksary and A. amtgai (both from the Upper Cretaceous of Asia). This clade formed a polytomy with the North American species of Adocus. Like other ‘true’ Adocus, A. inexpectatus has… 
New material and phylogenetic position of Adocus bostobensis, a poorly known adocid turtle from the Late Cretaceous of Kazakhstan
TLDR
This paper presents a description of a new material of Adocus bostobensis, a poorly known adocid turtle from the Late Cretaceous of Kazakhstan, and demonstrates presence of at least two different lineages of Adocidae in the Santonian of Western Asia.

A nearly complete shell of the genus Adocus (Adocidae; Pan-Trionychia; Cryptodira; Testudines) was collected from the late Cretaceous (Turonian) Tamagawa Formation of Kuji Group at Kuji City, Iwate
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.

A new amynodontid from the Eocene of South China and phylogeny of Amynodontidae (Perissodactyla: Rhinocerotoidea)

Abstract Turtles of the clade Pan-Trionychidae have a rich fossil record in the Old World, ranging from the Early Cretaceous (Hauterivian) to the Holocene. The clade most probably originated in Asia
Liquidambar maomingensis sp. nov. (Altingiaceae) from the late Eocene of South China.
TLDR
The first observations of such dimorphism in the fossil record of Liquidambar leaves are presented, providing paleobotanical evidence that justifies combining the genera Liquid Ambar, Altingia, and Semiliquidambar into the single genus Liquidambare as recently proposed based on molecular markers.
Earliest fossil fruit record of the genus Paliurus (Rhamnaceae) in Eastern Asia
The genus Paliurus is characterized by its distinctive orbicular-winged fruits and a trilocular (or bilocular) ovary. Macrofossil records suggested this genus was distributed widely in North America,

A redescription and phylogenetic position of Adocus planus, an adocid turtle from the Late Cretaceous of Mongolia
TLDR
The reexamination of the holotype of A. planus allows us to present new images of this specimen, improve its diagnosis and include it in a phylogenetic analysis of Adocusia (Adocidae + Nanhsiungchelyidae) for the first time.

TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of Adocidae and Nanhsiungchelyidae does not support the monophyly of this genus, but rather suggests that Ferganemys species form a polytomy with the Shachemys clade.
