Turbo sp.

Order Trocida
Family Turbinidae

Turbo sp.

Statigraphy:  Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation

Location:  SMR Phase 10 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA.

Status: Extinct


Notes:  Originally I had identified this species as Turbo dominicensis based upon images in popular publications and dealer sites, however it does not bear any resemblance to that species as shown in Woodring"s 1928 figure in his manuscript on the Fossil Mollusks of Bowden Jamaica.  The pictured species has thin, non-noded spiral cords and compares well with undescribed specimens in the Florida Museum of Natural History UF31535.
