Abstract

A well preserved skull of Puppigerus camperi (Testudines: Cryptodira: Cheloniidae) is reported from the Ypresian (Early Eocene) phosphate deposits of the Ouled Abdoun basin, Morocco. This discovery adds an additional element to the rich turtle assemblages hitherto known in the Ouled Abdoun basin, suggesting further close relationships with the Paleogene sea turtle fauna from northwestern Europe.
