  1. I had posted a poster of Florida shells of mine earlier but could not zoom in enough so I am posting individual fossil shells in hopes of getting correct identifications or adding to photo database. I am new to this so please gently guide me if I am not following a proper procedure or posting in an incorrect place. I have many high quality photos but am not sure where to put them. I can't seem to create a gallery for myself. Help Please? Thanks, Scott
  2. A day on the caloosahatchee

    A friend and I headed out on the caloosahatchee this morning. We went to our favorite location hoping to find some more Lions Paw's. The start of the day was wonderful. We got on the river near Alva just as Dawn was beginning to break. There had been a controlled burn yesterday so the sky was lit up orange and gold and beautiful. The river was medium height. But there was no wind and early in the morning the big Yachts don't create so many waves. We had it down to our favorite spot checking the walls along the river all the way down. On the way down I found a couple of pieces of antler although it's not shown in the photograph. As usual we found lots of pieces of turtle shell which I've been saving hoping to set into a concrete table top. They're so plentiful but I just thought they would be really cool. Has we got to our spot and started digging my friend had a couple of strombus fall out of the wall. That was followed by the only Lions Paul we found. We found a whole range of other things as you can see from the photograph my favorite is the vasum horridum. I have a large piece of antler or horn I can't identify. so i'll be posting that this week hoping someone can help. sorry for The lack of scale. these are in the tailgate of it truck
  3. L. catesbaianus Scapula

    Specimen was found using a sifting method at or around 1 feet of water in the banks of the Caloosahatchee River. Among other finds in same 2sq meters where angulosplenials, there is no way to take those into the Species level but are without doubt representations of the Ranidae Family. Also found was portion of a fossilized pelvis of what appear to be Deer (this is not corroborated to the Species), numerous scales of the fish family Lepisosteidae (Garfish), other unidentified but likely amphibian bones, 2 shark teeth (yet to be identified), unidentifiable bone fragments no larger than 2 inches, Drum fish teeth, unidentifiable teeth fragments, yet to be identified Cat Fish dorsal spikes and an innumerable variety of mollusk fossils. The presence of both amphibians and sharks in this locality demonstrate that within the Late Pliocene and Early Pleistocene Epochs this area of Glades County, FL was at one point lacustrine and at another a shallow sea environment. One can only speculate that there was intense glacial activity within such time frame.
  4. R. Catesbaiana Angulosplenials from the SW Florida Pliocene. Keep on finding an abundant precense of Amphibians 5.3 to 2.5 million years old in what is now Glades County, FL. Interesting that also shark teeth are present. Both lacustrine and sea environment in only 2.8M years. Sunday Funday!
  5. Hi Guys, Need help IDing this micro bones. They are part of more than 20 microbones including femurs less than .5” long. Amphibians?
  6. Hi Guys, Can you help me identify this tiny bone? It is so delicate I thought amphibian but this is not my strong. Kind regards, Alex
  7. Hi Guys, I need your help, I was sifting for Shark teeth on Glades County, FL. And came across this specimen buried in sand/under water. I need first and foremost help on its preservation. Also if you guys could identify it would be great. Looks like a shoulder blade of a quadruped but I’m lost on what exactly it is and how old it might be. Thank you, Alex

  9. Florida Gastropods Fossils

    Hello, I found these gastropods at Judd Park in Ft. Myers, FL. They were in sediments holding down a silt fence and probably brought in from somewhere close by. I have consulted the Peterson book, Southern Florida's Fossil Seashells. It is a great book and the only relevant fossil that I see is Strombus alatus. Can someone help me identify these fossils? Thank you!
  10. Florida Bivalves

    Hello, I found this bivalve in the dredging materials found along the Orange River near Manatee Park in Ft. Myers, FL. I have consulted the Peterson book, Southern Florida's Fossil Seashells. It is a great book but there is no relevant fossils. Can someone help me identify this fossil? Thank you!
  11. Strahlopecten caloosaensis

    A rare shell within the Caloosahatchee Formation.
  12. Turbinella angulata

    Locality is primarily Caloosahatchee but some Bermont is present.
  13. This past weekend Dozer Operator and I made a trip to a favorite locality near Lake Okeechobee which exposes both the Lower Pleistocene Caloosahatchee and the Middle Pleistocene Bermont Formations. Hurricane Mathew had grazed the Florida Peninsula the previous week so we were optimistic that the prodigious rains would have washed the sediments revealing marine goodies as well as some terrestrial vertebrate material. Jonathan came away with some nice horse teeth and I picked more Siphocypraea than I can ever use. My finds of the day included a pair of rare Morum oniscus from the Bermont and maximum sized Turbinella scolymoides from the Caloosahatchee.
  14. Caloosahatchee Micro Gastropods

    Hi, Just thought I would show some examples of the micro gastropds that are found in the Caloosahatchee fm of Florida. They all come from sieving the contents of larger shells and are between 2 and 8mm. Caecum coronellum Caecum floridanum Caecum imbricatum Cyclostremiscus dartschi Cyclostemiscus sp. Solariorbis funiculus Mioceras sp Kurtziella limonitella margaritifera Cadulus quadridentatus
