Abstract

Hardel/a isoclina was described by Dubois (1908) from the Trinil Beds (Pleistocene) ofKedoeng Panas (= Kedung Panas), Java, Indonesia, also the source of the famous remains of Java man, Homo ("Pithecanthropus ") erectus. The holotype and sole example of this fossil turtle species is at the Nationaal Natuurhistorisch Museum (previously Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie), Leiden and the original description of the new turtle fossil was brief and carried no illustrations. No reason was given for the assignment to the extant north Indian batagurid genus, Hardella, which is restricted to the flood plains of the rivers lndus, Ganges and Brahmaputra, in the northern parts of the Indian subcontinent (Smith, 1 931; Das, 1 995).
