A new platychelyid turtle (Pan‐Pleurodira) from the Late Jurassic (Kimmeridgian) of Oaxaca, Mexico

Until recently, the record of Mesozoic turtles in Mexico has been restricted to the Cretaceous. New discoveries in the Sabinal Formation (Tlaxiaco, Oaxaca) have extended the record into the

Osteology, Relationships, and Ecology of Annemys (Testudines, Eucryptodira) from the Late Jurassic of Shar Teg, Mongolia, and Phylogenetic Definitions for Xinjiangchelyidae, Sinemydidae, and Macrobaenidae

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.

Oldest known sea turtle

The discovery of an exceptionally well-preserved skeleton of the oldest known chelonioid, from the Early Cretaceous stage (about 110 million years before the present), of eastern Brazil is reported, supporting the idea that the establishment of the salt-excreting system, and the occupation of a marine habitat, may have preceded the formation of rigid paddles in the history ofChelonioids.

Comparative cranial morphology of the Late Cretaceous protostegid sea turtle Desmatochelys lowii

The results of the phenetic study show that Desmatochelys lowii is least similar to the other examined taxa in regards to the nature of its bone contacts, and therefore suggests a placement outside Americhelydia for this protostegid sea turtle.

and Oldest known marine turtle? A new protostegid from the Lower Cretaceous of Colombia.

Recent studies suggested that many fossil marine turtles might not be closely related to extant marine turtles (Che-lonioidea). The uncertainty surrounding the origin and phylogenetic position of

A new lithographic limestone deposit in the Upper Cretaceous Austin Group at El Rosario, county of Múzquiz, Coahuila, northeastern Mexico

At El Rosario, 170 km WNW of Muzquiz in northern Coahuila, Mexico, alternating evenly layered platy limestone and fi ssile marly limestone of late Turonian-early Coniacian age (Late Cretaceous)
