Pantestudines is the group of all reptiles more closely related to turtles than to any other animals. It includes both modern turtles (Testudines) and all of their extinct relatives (also known as stem-turtles).

They date back to the Middle Triassic, but with a possible Middle Permian (Guadalupian) record.
