Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
T. R. Lyson and W. G. Joyce 2011‘‘Baenoidea’’ refers to the clade originating from the most recent common ancestor of Pleurosternon (orig. Platemys) bullockii Owen, 1842 and Baena arenosa Leidy, 1870 and may not include any species of Recent turtle.
Jugal process contributes to the posterior most portion of labial ridge; deep cheek emargination reaches at least ventral margin of orbit.
