Serafis, Dimitris ; Greco, Sara ; Pollaroli, Chiara ; Jermini Martinez Soria, Chiara

Our data come from the Greek newspapers Kathimerini...

An alternative interpretation of Peltochelys duchastelii as a paracryptodire

Joyce, Walter G. ; Rollot, Yann

In: Fossil Record, 2020, vol. 23, no. 1, p. 83–93

Peltochelys duchastelii is an enigmatic turtle from Early Cretaceous (middle Barremian–early Aptian) Sainte-Barbe Formation of Bernissart, Belgium. In more recent literature, there has been strong support for the trionychian affinities of this taxon, but this interpretation is less consistent with external data, in particular biogeography and temporal considerations. We provide a...
