Fasciolaria okeechobensis


Order Neogastropoda
Family Fasciolariidae

Fasciolaria okeechobensis Tucker & Wilson, 1932 
Stratigraphy: Golden Gate Member of the Tamiami Formation

Location:  Construction site, Collier County, Florida USA.

Status: Extinct


Notes:  Similar to the recent Fasciolaria tulipa, but with the first two apical whorls highly sculpted.  Some authors have listed this species as an index fossil of the Middle Pleistocene Bermont Formation, but I have found it at several Tamiami Golden Gate sites as well as the Caloosahatchee.
