Notes on the Fauna of the Chipola Formation- IX on the Presence of Kuphus Incrassatus Gabb

Harold E. Vokes

Abstract


"Large tubes, similar to the Dominican Kuphus incrassatus are remarkably abundant in the Tertiary (Eocene to Miocene) limestones of the West Indies and Central America, especially in Anguilla, Puerto Rico, Haiti, Cuba, Jamaica, and Guatemala." (Woodring, 1925, p.195). This extensive geographical and geological distribution of Kuphus incrassatus has been recognized since the days when Gabb (1873, p. 246) described his species from near Guayubin, in Santo Domingo.
