  1. Vokesinotus lamellosus

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Muricidae Vokesinotus lamellosus (Emmons, 1858) Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 10 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Emmons (1958) first described Fusus lamellosus from the Miocene (now Pliocene) of North Carolina and Dall (1890) described Coralliophaga lepidotus from the Pliocene (now Lower Pleistocene) of Florida. Olsson & Harbinson (1953) figured Trophon lepidotus from the Caloosahatchee Formation, however Campbell (1993) listed Urosalpinx lepidotus in the Pliocene of Florida, North Carolina and Virginia overlooking lamellosus entirely. Those shells in the Caloosahatchee have a lower spire than the predominate shells in the Tamiami although some with lower spire heights can be found. For this reason I have chosen V. lamellosus as the high spired species and V. vokesinotus with the lower spire height. If both are the same, the proper name would V. lamellosus with V. lepidotus as a junior synonym by 32 years.
  2. Vokesinotus lepidotus

    Order Neogastropoda Family Muricidae Vokesinotus lepidotus (Dall, 1890) Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 10 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Similar to V. perrugata except ribs flare out forming winged varices.
  3. Vokesinotus perrugatus

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Muricidae Vokesinotus perrugatus (Conrad, 1837) Statigraphy: Golden Gate Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: Spoil, Collier County, Florida USA. Status: Extant Notes: No varices but ribs with delicate scale structure on spirals and interspaces.
  4. Trossulasalpinx  hertwecki

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Muricidae Eupleura tampaensis (Conrad, 1846) Statigraphy: Golden Gate Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: Bonita Grande Pit, Lee County, Florida USA. Status: Extant Notes: Strong spiral cords give this shell a reticulated appearance.
  13. Pterorytis roxanae

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Muricidae Pterorytis roxanae Petuch, 1994 Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 10 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: High shoulder triangular in shape. P. roxanae lacks the labrial tooth that is found in the other two species within this genus.
  14. Pterorytis fluviana

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Muricidae Pterorytis fluviana (Dall, 1903) Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 10 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Geographically widespread species in the Upper Pliocene and Lower Pleistocene of the Southeastern US, ranging from Virginia to Florida. Pterorytis conradi from the Lee Creek Mine, Aurora, North Carolina is a junior synonym of this species.
