Summary:
Inglis IA in Citrus County, Florida, is a fossiliferous early Pleistocene (Irvingtonian) sinkhole deposit in the Inglis member of the late Eocene Ocala Limestone. The non-passerine species of the paleoavifauna consists of over 2,710 specimens representing a minimum of 258 individuals of 12 orders, 18 families, 41 genera, and 47 species. Thirty-four percent of the species are extinct. Five new species are described.  Read more...

Abstract:

Inglis IA in Citrus County, Florida, is a fossiliferous early Pleistocene (Irvingtonian) sinkhole deposit in the Inglis member of the late Eocene Ocala Limestone. The non-passerine species of the paleoavifauna consists of over 2,710 specimens representing a minimum of 258 individuals of 12 orders, 18 families, 41 genera, and 47 species. Thirty-four percent of the species are extinct. Five new species are described. The families represented and the number of identified species in each family are: Gaviidae, 1; Podicipedidae, 3; Ardeidae, 3; Plataleidae, 1; Anatidae, 6; Vulturidae, 3; Accipitridae, 5; Falconidae, 2; Phasianidae, 2; Rallidae, 3; Gruidae, 1; Phorusrhacidae, 1; Scolopacidae, 2; Columbidae, 1; Cuculidae, 1; Strigidae, 7;; Tytonidae, 1; Picidae, 4. Inglis IA represents a community from a late glacial (Kansan) habitat of high pine, xeric hammock, and savanna. The composition of this avifauna is similar to that of a younger Irvingtonian site from Coleman, Florida.
