Siphocypraea carolinesis floridana (Mansfield, 1931)

Statigraphy:  Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation

Location:  SMR Phase 10, Sarasota County, Florida USA.

Status: Extinct


Notes:  Highly variable much more so than S. carolinensis.  The dorsum tends to be not as high as S. carolinensis and parietal denticles are more strongly expressed but shares the uncoiled anterior sulcus and wide posterior aperture.  This is the common Siphocypraea found in the Sarasota shell pits.  Also, Akleistostoma.
