    Numerous geoemydid turtle fossils from the extinct genus Echmatemys have been recovered from the middle Eocene Uinta Formation, Uinta Basin, Utah over the past several : Heather F. Smith, Daniel Jager, J. Howard Hutchison, Brent Adrian, K.E. Beth Townsend. The Fossil Turtles of Hagerman: Just Shells of Their Former Selves. Idaho is not known for its turtles. In fact, many people may not be aware that there is even a turtle living in the state, the painted turtle, found only in the panhandle. Since there are no turtles living in any parts of the Snake River drainage today, it may be somewhat of a Missing: Uinta formation.

    The 52 papers in this vary in content from summaries or state-of-knowledge treatments, to detailed contributions that describe new species. Although the distinction is subtle, the title (Vertebrate Paleontology in Utah) indicates the science of paleontology in the state of Utah, rather than the even more ambitious intent if it were given the title “Vertebrate Paleontology of Utah” which. The Uinta Basin lies south of the Uinta Mountains. The southern rim of the basin is formed by the Tavaputs Plateau of the Book Cliffs, and the western rim is formed by the Wasatch Mountains. The central portion of the basin has an elevation of 5, to 5, feet. Asphalt Ridge divides the Utah portion of the Basin into two unequal parts.

      Utah’s fossil record has recently been extended to rocks older than Cambrian with the discovery of microscopic fossils in the Proterozoic Uinta Mountain Group. Most of the world’s oldest commonly known fossils come from rocks of Cambrian age ( to million years ago). Douglass, whose specialty was fossil mammals, had been working in the Uinta Basin of northeastern Utah since , collecting million-year-old mammal fossils from the Eocene Uinta Formation.

New turtle fossils from Uinta Basin represent last documented members of the extensive Baenidae radiation The baenid turtles were an extinct clade of North American freshwater river turtles with an extensive radiation spanning from the early Cretaceous ( million years ago) to the middle Eocene (40 million years ago).

Until recently, fossil evidence linking the land-dwelling Eunotosaurus and the giant, marine turtles of the late Cretaceous period was sorely lacking. That all changed in with two major discoveries: first up was the late Jurassic, western European Eileanchelys, touted by researchers as the earliest marine turtle yet g: Uinta formation.
