“Pappochelys indeed forms a missing link for two reasons,” noted paleontologist and study lead author Rainer Schoch of Germany’s State Museum of Natural History Stuttgart in a Reuters article. “It is far older than all so far known turtles. And its anatomy is more primitive in many features, showing the ancestral condition of various body regions.”
The discovery of Pappochelys, a Triassic-era reptile with a set of emerging turtle-like features, is helping scientists fill in an important evolutionary gap.

I'm all in favour of evolution, but it's a gradual process so there are very many intermediate forms, very few of which will be caught in the fossil record. So someone determined to see two things as different, and missing an intermediate form, can always do that.

That is a given.  It's like estimating how long it'll take to complete a software project.  So many people only estimate how long it'd take in "ideal time," failing to account for real time issues (distractions, vacation time, sick time, etc.).  Likewise with capacity planning: yes, you may need only 10 servers to achieve some data processing goal, but few actually account for hot-spares in the event of server or media failure.

There's a lot of controversy over MOOCs. If they're so great, why do we need 50k/year universities? Do you get what you pay for with MOOCs?
