    Waccamaw Formation Gastropod ID Help

    A couple of weeks ago now I stumped upon several outcrops of the Early Pleistocene Waccamaw Formation in South Carolina. I have been able to identify the various mollusk that I found except for these last three gastropods. Either the resources I have found don't include an example that matches these specimens or it was just too close of a call. I would love to get some opinions on what these might be. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! #1- Petaloconchus sculpturatus? #2- Ilynassa sexdentata? #3- Phrontis sp.?

    Waccamaw River

    I’m going to be in Myrtle Beach this summer and would like to scuba dive in the Waccamaw River. Does anyone have information about this? I’m especially interested in a charter or going with an experienced group. Thanks!

    Waccamaw Bryozoan

    A few months back I won an auction from @sixgill pete and part of the lot was a bag of matrix from the Waccamaw Formation in Columbus County North Carolina. The Waccamaw Fm. is a marine sand and shell hash that has been correlated numerous different ways with a varying range of ages applied to it in the past, but as it is currently interpreted, it is Pleistocene in age (Gelasian and Calabrian Stages or Upper Blancan to Irvingtonian if you prefer the NA names) and found in South Carolina and southeastern North Carolina. The bag was chock full of molluscan goodies and I am steadily

    Mellita aclinensis

    Pieces of these are very common at this site, along with pieces of a few other species of sand dollar. However complete specimens are very rare to find. This is the 3rd and by far the best specimen I have found at this site.
  5. sixgill pete

    Tagelus plebeius

    An unusual find, at least to find one complete. Often these are found as pieces of single valves.
  6. sixgill pete

    Anadara lienosa

    Another nice double valve bivalve from Columbus County. Common as a single valve find, but very uncommon with both valves.
  7. MikeR

    Mercenaria permagna

    Campbell lists M. permagna as an extinct subspecies of M. campechiensis. Typically longer and less inflated than the extant species.
  8. sixgill pete

    Trachycardium emmonsi

    Avery nice double valve cockle. Single valves are not uncommon at this site but double valvers are very uncommon for this species.
  9. sixgill pete

    Lirophora latilirata

    Single valves are an extremely common find at this site. However, this is the first double valve specimen I have found. A very interesting looking little bivalve.
  10. sixgill pete

    Crepidula plana

    Colected at a private sand pit in Columbus County N.C. A beautiful little example of this tough to find species. Very fragile.
  11. sixgill pete

    Calliostoma wilcoxiana

    A very nice little gastropod. The marl pit this came out of produces very well preserved gastropods and bivalves. An uncommon find, but not rare.
  12. sixgill pete

    Glycymeris americana

    This little clam, though rather common; is nice to find in great condition. This particular specimen is one of the nicer ones I have found in this location.
  13. sixgill pete

    Ficus papyratia

    Self collected from a bucket of matrix brought home from a marl / shell pit in Columbus County NC. A very nice specimen.
  14. Thought I would share a few things that I collected during a short trip into the Waccamaw Formation in south eastern North Carolina on Saturday. We only spent about 2 and a half hours at the site but some really nice items were found. First a Melitta cf.M. aclinensis. Usually the sand dollars are found only as isolated pieces at this location, occasionally a whole one is found on matrix that is crushed and broken. However I found this complete unbroken one on matrix and another person found a complete unbroken one without matrix. I have started prepping this one out since the pic, it is c
  15. I finally had the opportunity and time to take a trip to an amazing quarry! I have not had many times to do this in the last year. Just awesome to be at this quarry and to be able to see our friends and visit. The best part of the day is that my son was able to experience the area again and have a blast collecting fossils! The area we hunted was Pleistocene, Waccamaw Formation, North Carolina. It is such special area and I am so happy of the times we are able to go there. Being able to hunt in an area where you are actually on an ancient sea bed is priceless and then captivating. Whene
  16. Well folks, I took a day off from the grinds of the job and made a rare Monday trip into the Waccamaw Formation of Southeastern North Carolina. I met up with a few old friends and made a couple of new ones. The new friends have been doing a traveling fossil trip and were kind enough to share a few of their finds with us new friends. Mine was this beautiful (at least to me) large Texas ammonite; anyone have an idea on the species? Anyways, we met early and took of for the site. Some of our forum members I know are familiar with this particular pit, but it was my fir

    Auger Shell

    From a Columbus County N.C. shell pit. A great specimen.
  18. sixgill pete


    A very nice bivalve that grabbed my attention.
  19. sixgill pete


    This nice little left handed whelk was one of several of these I found that day. But was by fare the nicest.
  20. sixgill pete


    This small specimen is right at 1" and has magnificent preservation.
  21. sixgill pete

    Tulip Shell

    This beautiful little tulip shell was found in a shell pit in Columbus County N.C. Uncommonly found complete and unbroken, this is one of the better specimens I have found.
  22. I need to identify this sponge. Waccamaw fm., Pliocene from Brunswick County, North Carolina Thats all I have to go on. If you know this species/genus or know someone who might I would appreciate it. Regards, Jim Wyatt Houston, Texas
