Notoemys zapatocaensis, a new side-necked turtle (Pleurodira: Platychelyidae) from the early cretaceous of Colombia

A carapace and posterior plastral lobe from the early Cretaceous Valanginian of northeastern Colombia is a new species of the pleurodire Notoemys. It is a pleurodire based on the sutured pelvis and xiphiplastral notch. Notoemys zapatocaensis, n.sp., differs from the other two species of Notoemys, N....
