    The Problem with Siphocypraea

    For millennia, humankind has been fascinated by the hard-external shell of the organisms classified within the Phylum Mollusca. Consumed first as food, their empty shells have served multiple functions in the past; as tools in many ancient cultures, in religious ceremonies by the Aztecs, and money by Pacific Islanders. During the Age of Discovery, sailors could supplement their meager incomes by selling exotic seashells to wealthy gentlemen for their Cabinets of Curiosity. Today many people first become enchanted with seashells by picking up worn beached shells during a vacation to the shor

    Siphocypraea mulepenensis

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Littorinimorpha Family Cypraeidae Siphocypraea mulepenensis Petuch, 1994 Statigraphy: Golden Gate Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: Near Imokalee, Collier County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Like S. problematica with a comma shaped anterior sulcus and narrow aperture. The shell differs in being shorter with a pyriform shape. The shell around the anterior sulcus noticeably protrudes.

    Siphocypraea ketteri

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Littorinimorpha Family Cypraeidae Siphocypraea ketteri Petuch, 1994 Statigraphy: Golden Gate Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: Near Imokalee, Collier County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Another form transitional between S. carolinensis and S. problematica. Differs from S. trippeana by having a wider shell and flattened base with noticeable wrinkles along the base. Petuch assigns this species in the genus Pseudadusta.

    Siphocypraea lindae

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Littorinimorpha Family Cypraeidae Siphocypraea lindae (Petuch, 1986) Statigraphy: Golden Gate Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: Near Imokalee, Collier County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Very close to S. carolinensis with a high dorsum and simple sulcus but with a narrower posterior aperture and stronger denticles on parietal lip. Petuch assigns this species in his genus Pseudadusta.

    Siphocypraea transitoria

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Littorinimorpha Family Cypraeidae Siphocypraea transitoria Olsson & Petit, 1964 Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: APAC, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Although common in the Kissimmee River area, this specimen is from APAC in Sarasota where it is much rarer. Very close to S. problematica with slightly less coiling of the anterior sulcus and a slightly wider posterior aperture. Petuch would call this Siphocypraea streami.

    Siphocypraea hughesi 

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Littorinimorpha Family Cypraeidae Siphocypraea hughesi Olsson & Petit, 1964 Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: Kissimmee River, Highlands County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Restricted to the Kissimmee River area. Distinctive shape, wide and squat. Anterior sulcus approaching that of S. problematica. Petuch assigns this species to Akleistostoma (Olssonicypraea).

    Siphocypraea trippeana

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Littorinimorpha Family Cypraeidae Siphocypraea trippeana Parodiz, 1988 Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: APAC, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Typically, shell is small and narrow with a high dorsum. The sulcus has a slight bend more so than the S. carolinensis complex, described as a keyhole appearance and a narrow aperture like S. problematica.

    Siphocypraea carolinesis floridana

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Littorinimorpha Family Cypraeidae Siphocypraea carolinesis floridana (Mansfield, 1931) Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 10, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Highly variable much more so than S. carolinensis. The dorsum tends to be not as high as S. carolinensis and parietal denticles are more strongly expressed but shares the uncoiled anterior sulcus and wide posterior aperture. This is the common Siphocypraea found in the Sarasota shell pits. Also, Akleistostoma.

    Siphocypraea carolinesis floridana

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Littorinimorpha Family Cypraeidae Siphocypraea carolinesis floridana (Mansfield, 1931) Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: APAC, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Example of a gerontic individual of this subspecies.

    Siphocypraea sarasotaensis

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Littorinimorpha Family Cypraeidae Siphocypraea sarasotaensis Petuch, 1994 Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: APAC, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: First described as a Siphocypraea, Petuch later classified this species with his Calusacypraea genus which is defined by neotenic characteristics such as an undeveloped anterior sulcus and very light weight. Many researchers feel that this species is merely a variation of S. floridana (Lyle Campbell pers. comm.). WoRMS classification Sip

    Siphocypraea briani

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Littorinimorpha Family Cypraeidae Siphocypraea briani (Petuch, 1996) Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: APAC, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Described as Calusacypraea briani and differentiated from S. sarasotaensis by having a larger and longer shell. I have placed this shell as S. briani however it could be a gerontic individual of S. sarasotaensis. Some Cypraeidae demonstrate sexual dimorphism which could explain the larger size as well. WoRMS classification Siphocypraea, Petu

    Cypraea sp.

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Littorinimorpha Family Cypraeidae Cypraea sp. Statigraphy: Ochopee Limestone Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: Canal spoil, Collier County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Presence of a distinct spire suggests that these internal casts do not belong to the genus Siphocypraea.

    Siphocypraea chilona

    This specimen demonstrates a spotted color pattern. Reference L. Dolin. 1991. Cypraeoidea and Lamellarioidea (Mollusca: Gastropoda), from the Chipola Formation (late early Miocene) of northwestern Florida. Tulane Studies in Geology and Paleontology 24(1-2):1-60

    Siphocypraea griffini

    S. griffini has a smaller length to width ratio than S. problematica (MR 2057-121) however Petuch has named a large number of Cypraeidae from the Florida Plio-Pleistocene many of which are probably not valid. A variance plot of many individuals would need to be produced to unequivocally determine if S. griffini is a distinct species. Reference Petuch, Edward J. 1994. Atlas of Florida Fossil Shells (Pliocene and Pleistocene Marine Gastropods). Chicago Spectrum Press.

    Siphocypraea problematica
