Hay (1908), and Rose and Weaver (1966) described turtles of the genus Chrysemys (sensu McDowell, 1964) from the Pliocene of north peninsular Florida. Reexamination of type and referred materials indicates that C. carri Rose and Weaver is indistinguishable from Pseudemys caeleta Hay (= Chrysemys caelata). C. caelata is a characteristic member of Hemphillian faunas of Florida and appears to be immediately ancestral to C. nelsoni.
