Paleo Info[]

Basilemys is a large, terrestrial trionychoid turtle that was from the Upper Cretaceous time period. When you break down the genus, Basilemys, into two parts you get the terms "Basil" and "Emys." In Greek, the "Basil (name)" means royal or kingly and the word "Emys" means turtle. Therefore, Basilemys means King Turtle. The stratigraphic subdivisions of the Upper Cretaceous include Cenomanian, Turonian, Coniacian, Santonian, Campanian, and Maastrichtian. Basilemys was mostly from the Campanian and Maastrichtian subdivisions of the Cretaceous time period and is considered to be the largest terrestrial turtle of its time. Basilemys belongs to the family Nanhsiungchelyidae.
