Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
R. E. Weems and J. L. Knight 2013A species of Bairdemys differing from Bairdemys hartsteini and Bairdemys sanchezi in its rela- tively narrower lower jaw, from Bairdemys venezuelensis and Bairdemys sanchezi in the absence of a raised ridge along the midline of the fused dentaries, from Bairdemys winklerae in its relatively narrow quadrate articular surfaces and in the short length of the quadrate shaft above the articular surface which produces a very stocky appearance in lateral view, and from Bairdemys miocenica in its rela- tively wider and shorter anterior plastral lobe, relatively wider nuchal, and less robust humeral shaft.
