Microtis (onion orchids) is a small genus in the orchid family Orchidaceae. [more]
Neritilia is a of freshwater and brackish water snails, aquatic gastropod mollusks in the family Neritiliidae. [more]
Neritina is a genus of small aquatic snails with an operculum, marine, brackish water, and sometimes freshwater gastropod mollusks in the family Neritidae, the nerites. [more]
A concretion is a hard, compact mass of sedimentary rock formed by the precipitation of mineral cement within the spaces between the sediment grains. Concretions are often ovoid or spherical in shape, although irregular shapes also occur. The word 'concretion' is derived from the Latin con meaning 'together' and crescere meaning 'to grow'. Concretions form within layers of sedimentary strata that have already been deposited. They usually form early in the burial history of the sediment, before the rest of the sediment is hardened into rock. This concretionary cement often makes the concretion harder and more resistant to weathering than the host stratum. [more]
Theodoxus is a genus of small freshwater and brackish water neritid snail with an operculum. [more]
Thoristella is a genus of sea snails, marine gastropod molluscs in the family Trochidae, the top snails or top shells. [more]
