Notes on the Fauna of the Chipola Formation- XXX: On the Presence of Eudolium (Galeodolium) Subfasciatum Sacco (Gastropoda: Tonnidae)

Emily H. Vokes

Abstract


In the exposures of the Chipola Formation along Tenmile Creek, Calhoun County, Florida, we have taken a number of specimens of a genus hitherto unreported in the fossil record of the Western Hemisphere, although it is widespread in the Tertiary beds of the Old World. In the Recent waters of the western Atlantic there are but two species referred to this genus, both occurring in moderately deep water. Thus, the identification of specimens of Endolium subfasciatum Sacco, 1890, in the Chipola Formation is of more than routine interest.
