Siphocypraea briani (Petuch, 1996)

Statigraphy:  Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation

Location:  APAC, Sarasota County, Florida USA.

Status: Extinct


Notes:  Described as Calusacypraea briani and differentiated from S. sarasotaensis by having a larger and longer shell.  I have placed this shell as S. briani however it could be a gerontic individual of S. sarasotaensis.  Some Cypraeidae demonstrate sexual dimorphism which could explain the larger size as well.  WoRMS classification Siphocypraea, Petuch Calusacypraea.
