New fossil materials of the Diamond-backed Terrapin (Malaclemys terrapin) are described from Late Pleistocene coastal deposits of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. Specimens represent isolated carapacial bones from a number of different individuals. The fossils are identified as Malaclemys based on the features of scute sulci and the presence of annuli scars on most specimens. These new fossil records provide evidence that Malaclemys was distributed throughout the southeastern United States during the Late Pleistocene.
