Abstract

The skull of a new turtle from the Tiffanian (Paleocene) of the Goler Formation, Kern County, California is the first confirmed baenid from the Pacific slope of North America. Goleremys mckennai, gen. et sp. n., is represented by a nearly complete skull that shares two weak apomorphies with the latest Cretaceous and Paleocene genera, Stygiochelys and Palatobaena. The new genus appears to be the sister taxon of those eubaenine genera.
