dc.description.abstract "Solnhofia parsonsi is a new genus and species of turtle based on skull material from the late Jurassic of Germany and Switzerland. One of the specimens has been described (but not named) elsewhere (Parsons and Williams, 1961); new information on the palate and basicranium is presented herein. Solnhofia possesses the shared derived characters diagnostic of the Cryptodira and within the Cryptodira of a group I have termed the Eucryptodira. More specific hypotheses of relationship are difficult to make for Solnhofia because most of the characters that are useful in comparing turtles are either primitive or uniquely derived in Solnhofia"--P.
