@caldigger, thanks for the thoughts. I haven't forgot you and the sand dollars. Been too cold for me to prep outside till this week. I actually tried a bit today. That matrix is HARD!! I will work diligently on it after I clean up the echinoids that Sacha put me on. The matrix there is butter soft!!

Thanks Ricardo. I think it is Dosinia concentrica based on your suggestion!

Hope this tickles a few of your fancies.

"A few"? You just massively tickled all of mine! :P 

You did surprisingly well, congrats on all your amazing finds! Very cool, Florida has some insane fossil shells to offer. I want to go back there just so that I can actively hunt these better. 

 

Unless @MikeR has gotten to it before me (in that case, trust his much more accurate judgement!), I'll try to help with some of the ID's tomorrow, it's getting late here.

Great selection of species, Mike! Lots of wonderful specimens and wonderful photos too.:)

I particularly like the corals and the different species of Plicatula.

Thanks for showing these, as has been said, it's a very useful reference guide.

That's a TON of inverts Mike! As always was a pleasure to get out with you. Hopefully your next visit we'll be able to get into some more fruitful spots:D

@jcbsharkI did see many trees with ripe oranges on them, does that count as fruitful??

Superb dry land collection of Florida shells.  You might be a conchologist (a very, very old term for collectors).  

 

Well poo, it looks like we are short on fossil shell emoticons.  Who can fix that?

Nice finds!! #45 is a type of murex shell. That’s all I can really say.

Mike,

Fantastic thread.. You have developed some real talent in setting up multiple views of the fossil shells,  inserting a measurement device and taking well proportioned photos..:fistbump:

Sorry from delayed response, I have been out at every opportunity to catch up for 5 months of no hunting the Peace River... Feeling good but needed today off..

You are a great guest,  liberal with fossil bribes, react to changes on a dime, and I am pleased we were able to squeeze in some successful hunting on a gorgeous day in a favorite spot....
