Turritella/Cerith External Mold Fossil?

Recommended Posts

Bronzviking

Hi, I found this external mold shell on Honeymoon beach, Florida USA. It's about 2" long and 3/4" on the widest end. Unfortunately it is broken and worn on the right edge, but I still thought it was a cool find. It's limestone and has about 3 more shell imprints on the flip side (not shown). This was an unusual shape so I made a clay mold to better see the shape (3rd photo)I looked through many seashell books and narrowed it down to Eastern Turritella or Florida Cerith. What do you think?

I'd say you're on the right track. Unfortunately I can't help you any further.

I will agree that it is an external mold from a turritella type shell. I am not sure it can be identified any further than that. @MikeR any thoughts on this?
