 The Smithsonian Museum of Natural History has a number of Cretaceous Period shell fossils on display from Alabama.  This first picture is of the Calyptraphorus trinodiferus. The next picture shows a Clinuropsis pagodiformis.

The third picture contains pictures of two specimens: Lecifusus sp. and  Latirus tortilis.

The last picture is of a "Voluta" newcombiana.
