Abstract

A turtle fauna including at least five taxa is described from the Early Cenomanian paralic deposits of Charentes. In addition to an indeterminate pleurodire (cf. Dortokidae), cryptodires are mainly represented by a solemydid. The solemydids are terrestrial turtles which are especially abundant in the only estuarine assemblage studied, where they are parautochthonous. Turtle remains are more fragmented and more abraded in coastal assemblages, indicating longer transport and sea-floor residence time before burial.
