A new species of chelid turtle, Platemys macrocephala, is described from the upper Rio Mamoré of central Bolivia and the Pantanal region of the upper Rio Paraguai of Brazil. It is most closely related to P. radiolata and differentiated mainly by its wider head, more robust skull, and larger body size.
