This historic book may have numerous typos, missing text or index. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. 1887. Not illustrated. Excerpt: ... FOSSILS OF THE PLIOCENE (" FLORIDIAN") FORMATION OF THE CALOOSAHATCHIE. Murrx imperialis, Swainson. Zoological Illustrations, 2d ser., ii, p. 67. Tryon, Manual of Conchology, ii, p. 1o1, pi. 23, fig. 2o6. . A limited number of individuals from the banks of the, Caloosahatchie below Fort Thompson, showing no essential variation from the living form. The occurrence of this species in the Pliocene deposits of the State practically determines its true home to be the Atlantic border of America and not the Pacific coast, as is frequently asserted (Reeve, Conchologia Iconica, Murex, sp. 42).

The species also grades into M. erocatus, which appears to be nothing more than a nodulose variety of M. brevifrons. Fusus Caloosaensis, nov. sp. Fig. i. Shell typically fusiform, of about ten volutions; spire acuminate, about one-third the length of shell, with a slightly papillate apex; whorls sub-angular, longitudinally ribbed, and crossed by somewhat distantlyplaced, elevated, revolving lines, the median two of which on the whorls above the body-whorl appear more developed than the others. Body-whorl with about nine revolving lines, the two on the shoulder, with occasional intermediate finer lines, least prominent; aperture semioval, with a long, nearly strai...
