    I found this inside another mollusc shell from either the Eastover formation or the Yorktown formation. The scale is millimeters.

    I don’t know the species, but I think it’s in the family Terebridae, commonly referred to as the auger snails.

    @hunter-thurmond have you used the Digital Atlas of Ancient Life? It is an online ID guide, and has a Neogene guide for the Southeast US.

    There are a lot of gastropods to sort through, but this one caught my eye as similar to your specimen:

    I would look through the others too, since I just did a brief glance through some of the snail families!
