Abstract

We identify a fragmentary turtle specimen from the middle Miocene (MN 5) of Hambach, Germany, as the bridge peripheral of a carettochelyine turtle. This important find extends the fossil record of the group to the Neogene of Europe and calls into question the utility of fossil carettochelyids in identifying tropical climate zones.
