    Florida Unknowns Part 1

    Having returned last week from a nice visit with my son in Florida, it was time to examine the fossils that I snuck home with. Eventually, I will make a trip report, but I need to identifying my unknowns first. So Here goes, and I might as well tag @MikeR right off the bat! The next unknown appears to be sponge like. In fact the largest one ACTUALLY FLOATS in water. So these are very light weight. I couldn't find sponges in the Tamiami, so maybe my formation is incorrect. The rubbl
  2. This week, work carried me to South Florida once again and as the winter temperatures were a chilly 70oF, an opportunity to do some weekend collecting at one of my favorite quarries. Unlike the famous shell pits in Sarasota where the Pinecrest Member of Tamiami exposes extensive beds of Pliocene shell, this quarry lying within the coral facies (Golden Gate Member) of the Tamiami is composed of not only shell but limestone, sand and corals. I am constantly confounded with this locality's geology as certain faunal elements suggest Lower Pleistocene Caloosahatchee Formation. Published reports

    Calophos wilsoni

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Nassariidae Calophos wilsoni Allmon, 1990 Stratigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: Quality Aggregates, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Many workers have assigned this species to C. plicatilis, a Mexican fossil species. Warren Allmon in his pre-PRI career, separated C. wilsoni from C. plicatilis as a larger shell with a greater variability in its spiral structure.

    Calophos nannus

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Nassariidae Calophos nannus Petuch, 1994 Stratigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: Quality Aggregates, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: In comparison to C. wilsoni, C. nannus is smaller with more rounded whorls, shorter spiral and faint expression of ribbing. If generic assignment is correct, it is the second described species of Calophos from North America.

    Pliocene Project Part 2

    Part of the fascination with fossil shells is the excellent preservation which occurs under the proper conditions. With the exception of color, specimens whether shell, coral, or echinoderm, many times look as if they were picked off of a beach. Yet careful examination reveals differences between fossil and recent related species which demonstrate changes within taxa through time. Often overlooked however, are the geological processes which form shell beds. A principle of global geology is transgressive/regressive sea level rise. During warm periods, less water is captured in ice caps and glac

    Sinistrofulgur contrarium

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Buccinidae Sinistrofulgur contrarium (Conrad, 1840) Stratigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 8 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Differences in the spire and sculpture of the fossil species separates it from recent Sinistrofulgur sinistrum.

    Busycoarctum tropicalis

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Buccinidae Busycoarctum tropicalis (Petuch, 1994) Stratigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 10 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Sub adults of this species have been identified as Busycoarctum rapum while adults resemble Busycoarctum maximum. Heilprin (1886) in his description of B. rapum stated that it is a smooth shell lacking shoulder spines. B. tropicalis is more heavily striated with shoulder spines suggesting a different species.

    Busycotypus bicoronatum

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Buccinidae Busycotypus bicoronatum (Tripp, 1988) Stratigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: Quality Aggregates Quarry, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Although similar in appearance to B spiratum, B bicoronatum is closer to the recent Channeled Whelk, Busycotypus canaliculatus but less inflated.
  19. MikeR

    Busycotypus spiratus

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Buccinidae Busycotypus spiratus (Lamarck, 1816) Stratigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 10 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA.

    Laeviscyon planulatum

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Buccinidae Laeviscyon planulatum (Dall, 1890) Stratigraphy: Bed 4 Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 10 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Almost identical to L. laevis but lacking a subsutural sulcus. Since both L. planulatum and L laevis are found in the same unit, the sulculus could be variation thus making L. laevis a synonym to L. planulatum.
  21. MikeR

    Laeviscyon laevis

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Buccinidae Laeviscyon laevis (Petuch, 1982) Stratigraphy: Bed 4 Tamiami Formation Location: APAC Quarry, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Less inflated than L. demistriatum with a deep narrow subsutural sulcus. Mostly smooth with faint spirals
