dc.description.abstract "A natural endocast of the skull of Bothremys, a pelomedusid pleurodire from the late Cretaceous (Magothy Formation of Cliffwood Beach, New Jersey) is unusual in preserving the orbital cavities as well as the brain cavity. The endocast provides new information on the basicranium, as well as the orbital and nasal cavities, and allows comparison with Recent pelomedusids"--P. [1]. en_US
