  7. Lobatus williamsi

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order LittorinimorphaFamily StrombidaeLobatus williamsi (Olsson & Petit, 1964)Location: Bonita Grande Pit (Golden Gate Member), Lee County, Florida USA. Status: ExtinctNotes: Large Strombid with a flaring aperture lip and locally abundant in the Golden Gate Member of the Tamiami Formation.

    Order LittorinimorphaFamily StrombidaeLobatus cf. gigas (Linneaus, 1758)Location: Imokalee (Golden Gate Member), Collier County, Florida USA. Status: ExtinctNotes: Originally identified as L. dominator. After consultation with Stromboidea experts, original identification within the Golden Gate Member was incorrect. Closest resemblance is to the extant Queen Conch, Lobatus gigas.
  9. Strombus floridanus

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order LittorinimorphaFamily StrombidaeStrombus floridanus Mansfield, 1930Location: SMR Phase 10, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: ExtinctNotes: This is one of the most common gastropods found in the Sarasota pits.
  10. Strombus sarasotaensis

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order LittorinimorphaFamily StrombidaeStrombus sarasotaensis Petuch, 1994Location: APAC, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: ExtinctNotes: Petuch reports this species in Bed 4. Very similar to S. floridanus but slightly more constricted with a higher spire. Additional work is needed to determine if this species is a variant of S. floridanus.
  11. Lobatus hertweckorum

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order LittorinimorphaFamily StrombidaeLobatus hertweckorum (Petuch, 1991)Location: SMR Phase 10 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: ExtinctNotes: This is the common large conch found in the Sarasota Pits. See L. mulepenensis for differences.
  12. Lobatus mulepenensis

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order LittorinimorphaFamily StrombidaeLobatus mulepenensis (Petuch, 1994)Location: Imokalee, Collier County, Florida USA. Status: ExtinctNotes: Similar to L. hertweckorum this shell has a more angulate less rounded apertural lip with only very faint to absent ribbing on the body whorl. Found in the Golden Gate Member of the Tamiami Formation.
  13. Crepidula depressa

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Crepidula depressa Say, 1822 Location: SMR Phase 10, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extant Notes: Flat to concave due to its preference for attachment on the inside of the aperture of dead gastropods. Fossil species have traditionally been named Crepidula plana also a species still living today. Molecular studies have shown that although nearly identical in appearance C. depressa is a different species restricted to the warmer waters of Florida while C. plana extends along the Northern Atlantic as far south as the Carolinas and Georgia.
  14. Crepidula fornicata

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Crepidula fornicata (Linneaus, 1758) Location: SMR Phase 10, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extant Notes: Most examples of this species both fossil and living are highly inflated and demonstrate stacking. Compare to LINK. The vast majority of this species from the Sarasota pits are much less inflated. These might represent ecomorphs.
  15. Crepidula cymbaeformis

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Crepidula cymbaeformis (Conrad, 1841) Location: APAC, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Longer than wide with apex extended from the body of the shell. Campbell (1994) noted the ability of the animal to absorb hematite into the interior of the shell which helps in identification.
  16. Bostrycapulus aculeata aculeata

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Bostrycapulus aculeata aculeata (Gmelin, 1791) Location: SMR Phase 10, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extant Notes: Small low relief with several rows of longer spines among many more rows with smaller spines.
  17. Bostrycapulus aculeata ponderosa

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Bostrycapulus aculeata ponderosa (H.C. Lea, 1843) Location: APAC, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Campbell (1994) listed all spiny slipper shells from the Southeastern USA as one of two subspecies of the extant B. aculeata. Subspecies ponderosa is highly inflated and it is variable in terms of spines as stacked individuals will remove spines of individual below. Due to different life style from extant B. aculeata this could be considered a separate species.
  18. Crucibulum multilineatum

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Crucibulum multilineatum (Conrad, 1841)Location: APAC, Sarasota County, Florida USA.Status: Extinct Notes: Distinctive very fine ribbing.
  19. Crucibulum spinosum

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Crucibulum spinosum (Sowerby, 1824)Location: APAC, Sarasota County, Florida USA.Status: Extant Notes: Broad ribs with spiny exterior.
  20. Crucibulum scutellatum

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Crucibulum scutellatum (Wood, 1828)Location: SMR Phase 10 pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA.Status: Extinct Notes: Similar to C. auricula but with distinctive cross ribbing which gives this species a distinctive net-like pattern.
  21. Crucibulum auricula

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Crucibulum auricula (Gmelin, 1791)Location: SMR Phase 10 pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA.Status: Extant Notes: Ribbing without much interspace. Cup-like muscle shelf.
  22. Trochita floridana

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Trochita floridana Olsson & Petit, 1964Location: SMR Phase 10 pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA.Status: Extinct Notes: Ribbing reminiscent of many Crucibulum however the muscle shelf is not shaped like a cup but straight.
  23. Calyptraea centralis

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Calyptraea centralis (Conrad, 1841)Location: SMR Phase 10 pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA.Status: Extant Notes: Growth lines with no ribbing creating a smooth appearance. Muscle shelf straight.
  24. Bone

    Another find from my yard, this one in a pile of other fragments that look like bone, inhavent had a chance to wash them yet. I found a huge pile that was next to my shell mound "driveway" there were also some crude looking points mixed in with the pile... wish an archeologist would pay attention to me already! It's about 15cm long.. that's a rough guess since the measurer keeps getting moved.
  25. Holy moly guys. The saga of my historical yard continues... is this man made or a fossil? Had other great finds today, I think this one needs a post all of its own.
