dc.description.abstract "Miocene freshwater deposits in the Tirari Desert region of South Australia have yielded the first skull material of chelid turtles in the fossil record. Partial skulls consisting of well preserved but disarticulated elements are very similar to the Recent genus Emydura, hypothesized by Gaffney (1977) as one of the more plesiomorphic of the Recent chelids. Well-preserved shells, cervical vertebrae, and limb elements are also consistent with this identification"--P. [1]. en_US
