Recent finds, new localityFound a new locale. I found dozens of cowries & cones, but included photographs here of the more unusual stuff:
> a huge cowrie!;
> two turtle femus (probably recent);
> several intact, complete crab claws;
> one lower Blacktip Reef Shark tooth;
> several rare Cypraea granulata cowries
> Porcupinefish jaw
The locale has a much larger exposure, with abundant material in matrix. The turtle femus I found in association with a few opihi limpets, and I suspect they are old pre-fossils.
BTW, don't remember if I ever gave ages of these things:
Late Pleistocene (!125,000 yrs BP), Waimanolo Fm.
