Abstract

A new fossil turtle of the family Xinjiangchelyidae, Xinjiangchelys uttatturensis is being described from the Cretaceous of southern India. The partially preserved unique type was collected from near Uttattur in Tamil Nadu State. The new species is diagnosed by the following suite of characters: external surface of carapace ornamented with raised incipient nodes forming striations, eight neural bones, moderately broad vertebral scutes and absence of plastral fontanelles in presumed adult.
