  1. Hello everyone, I found these gastropods along the Sanibel Causeway in Ft. Myers, FL. They were in a pile of shells being used for landscaping so I presume that the sediments came from a nearby quarry of ?Pleistocene age, possibly the Caloosahatchee Fm. Can someone help me verify and identify this fossil? Family Muricidae? Thank you!

  4. Hey everyone! i was wondering If I could get your opinion on two things with this tooth. 1)does this look like It was found in a BV, golden beach, Etc. location? 2)I had someone suggest that this may be a transitional GW, due to the fact that the serrations are uneven, and get larger, and smaller depending on where you look, even though the serrations don’t seem damaged.
  5. Cymatophos lindae

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Nassariidae Cymatophos lindae Petuch, 1994 Stratigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: APAC Quarry, Sarasota County, Florida USA.

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Nassariidae Nassarius fargoi Olsson & Harbinson, 1953 Stratigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 8 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA.

  21. Florida Fossil Identification Help

    Hello all, There seems to be about three or four websites that have pretty good identification tools and photos. Could you please provide links to those sites? Thank you! Greg Kruse Casper, WY

    Hello, I found this bivalve along the Sanibel Causeway in Ft. Myers, FL. They were in a pile of shells being used for landscaping so I presume that the sediments came from a nearby quarry of ?Pleistocene age. Can someone help me verify and identify these two fossils? Thank you!
  23. Gastropod Identification 2

    Hello, Is there anyone that can point me to the correct genus species of these gastropods? Are they in the family Buccinidae? See reference here: https://neogeneatlas.net/species/busycotypus-scotti/. I found them at the Sanibel Causeway where they had a fresh stockpile of shells for landscaping. Therefore the provenance is unfortunately unknown.
  24. Gastropod Identification 1

    Hello all, I need some help identifying this gastropod. It is from the Babcock Ranch northeast of Cape Coral and Ft. Myers. We collected these fine specimens from some of the "spoils" near the golf course. It appears to be a gastropod, but that is as far as I can go with the identification. Does anyone have any idea what the age and formation would be at this former quarry site? Most of my references would say "undifferentiated Pilo-Pleistocene deposits. Attached is a photo and a kmz link to the site. Thank you in advance! Greg Kruse Casper, WY Babcock Ranch.kmz
  25. Florida Pelecypod Identification Help

    I found these near Cape Coral in a stock pile of sediment that was going to be used for landscaping. Are they Arcinella cornuta, the spiny jewel box clam? See link here: https://neogeneatlas.net/species/arcinella-cornuta/. Thank you!
