It was recombined as Craspedochelys passmorei by Anquetin et al. (2017).
If no rank is listed, the taxon is considered an unranked clade in modern classifications. Ranks may be repeated or presented in the wrong order because authors working on different parts of the classification may disagree about how to rank taxa.
|J. Anquetin et al. 2017||Craspedochelys passmorei differs from all other Craspedochelys by having a hexagonal carapace, with its greatest width between peripherals IV and VII, and a deeper nuchal notch. In addition, Craspedochelys passmorei differs from Craspedochelys jaccardi by having a lower length/width ratio of the costal bones (around 4.3, as opposed to 4.8 or more for costal IV), reduced epiplastra that do not reach the lateral margin of the anterior plastral lobe, and a longer posterior plastral lobe. It differs from Craspedochelys picteti by being smaller in size and by having a less quadrangular anterior carapace, a contact between costal VIII and peripheral XI, a wider than long pygal bone, and wider than long hyoplastra.|
