Key West, Smathers Beach (man made)     24.33 N, 81.46 W      recent from 0,6-1m depth
Jim M. from Florida informed about the fact, that Smathers Beach is a man made beach with sand from an unknown origin.
The specimens shown are common around Florida and Jan took the sample a bit off the beach-line, but anyhow they may have been transported from elsewhere.
