Annemys latiens was named by Sukhanov and Narmandakh (2006). Its type specimen is GIN (without number), a partial shell, and it is a 3D body fossil. Its type locality is Shar Teg, Ulan Malgait Fm. [HMNS-GIN], which is in a Tithonian terrestrial horizon in the Ulan Malgait Formation of Mongolia.

It was corrected as Annemys latiens by Sukhanov and Narmandakh (2000); it was recombined as Xinjiangchelys latiens by Matzke et al. (2004) and Rabi et al. (2013).

Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
V. B. Sukhanov and P. Narmandakh 2006Plates of the shell are relatively thinner than in A. levensis. The neural 1 is hexagonal with very short posterolateral border. The neural 2 is quadrangular. The neural 7 is reduced posteriorly allowing contact of the costals 7 at midline. The neural 8 may be absent. The vertebrals 2 and 3 are relatively narrow, whereas the vertebrals 4 and 5 are more wide, the vertebral 5 being wider than the vertebral 1. The posterior plastral lobe is relatively wide. The anterior projection of the anals is wide, reaching 55% of the lobe width at the basement.
