Beautiful pictures of a very lovely looking area. 

Great finds too, some of those teeth are excellent. 

Not a bad start to the season at all. :)

What a beautiful place with a great amount of teeth. Very curious about the white flowers if you know the name.

@Innocentx  the white flowers are Hymenocallis sp.,the 'white spider lily',  They are native to the southeastern USA and down to South America.

 

Looks like you had a great trip, flyg!

I've been interested in this myself. I'm no botanist, but I'm certain they are in the group with the common name spider lily, almost certainly a species of Hymenocallis, probably Hymenocalis caroliniana. I've seen the very similar shoals spider lily, H. coronaria, in the Piedmont areas of Georgia and South Carolina, USA, where they are a species of concern due to loss of habitat resulting from dam construction. What I've observed about these lilies is they don't tend to bloom all at once, but each patch tends to have just a handful of blooms, whereas the H. coronaria tend to bloom all at once in really magnificent mass displays. So that's a start for your research.

 

Thanks all.

 

Just saw Fruitbat's reply. Looks like I was on the right track.

Thanks @Fruitbat@flyg for the flower ID. I was thinking Ipomoea, but from further research, I see these plants are quite different.

If I want an angustidens, then I have to look for it on the web :wacko: That looks like a much more pleasant way of searching. :)

By the way, a lot of you are writing "O." here. I thought the widely accepted up-to-date version is "C.".

After some research, I found that they are indeed recorded in the Calvert Formation! I did not know, now I just have to find one!

Yes, "C." for Carcharocles... If I don't make mistake.

It’s has been revised again, with the finding of Meglolamna it was found Otodus is a Paraphyl without including Carcharocles. Anyway, Otodus is the currently (for the time being) the proper name.
