Siphocypraea sarasotaensis Petuch, 1994
Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation
Location: APAC, Sarasota County, Florida USA.
Notes: First described as a Siphocypraea, Petuch later classified this species with his Calusacypraea genus which is defined by neotenic characteristics such as an undeveloped anterior sulcus and very light weight. Many researchers feel that this species is merely a variation of S. floridana (Lyle Campbell pers. comm.). WoRMS classification Siphocypraea while Petuch would call this species Calusacypraea myakka.
