Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
H. Tong et al. 2015Revised diagnosis (shell): A genus of Xinjiangchelyidae with thick shell and vertebral scutes that are as wide as long or wider than long. Differs from Protoxinjiangchelys, Chengyuchelys, Tienfuchelys and Yanduchelys in having the plastron connected to carapace by mean of a series of pegs on the plastron margin fitting into the sockets on the peripherals; and a reduced neural series in most members, with the posterior costals meeting along the midline. Differs from Annemys in the wider second and third vertebrals, the first vertebral as wide as the second and third vertebrals, the intervertebral sulcus between the third and fourth vertebrals located on the fifth neural and the pair of eighth costals meeting along the midline.
