Calvert Ciffs is only one of many fossil locations in Maryland. This beautiful ecphora quadricostata was discovered at Chesapeake Beach (formerly called Randle Cliffs). This ecphora specimen is about 2 inches long. Ecphora quadricostata is the State Fossil of Maryland.

These Eocene Turritella plebia shells are, I believe, from the Choptank Formation. The thinner shells are tusk shells named for their obvious shape. I do not know the species. I found them washing around in the waves of Solomons Island, Maryland.
