The «Pinecrest Sand,» an abundantly fossiliferous Late Pliocene deposit best exposed near Sarasota, Florida, is a poorly understood stratigraphic unit of considerable paleobiological interest because of its geographic and temporal position and extremely abundant and diverse mollusk fauna. The absolute age of this unit has been a subject of some debate, and has considerable implications for its taphonomic history. Evaluation of published and unpublished data indicates that the Pinecrest at… Expand
