Short summary
A partial carapace of a turtle from the middle Eocene of Saint-Gilles is presented here. Although it was donated to the Institut royal des Sciences naturelles de Belgique (Brussels, Belgium) more than a century ago, it remained undescribed. Its study allows us to recognize the second pleurodiran turtle in the Belgian fossil record. It is the first partial articulate shell of a pleurodiran recognized in Belgium, and the only member of this clade recognized in this country at specific level.
