Three Fossil Fruits, New to the Magothy Formation (Upper Cretaceous) of Long Island.

We collected three fossilized fruits that are new to the Magothy Formation, and new to science.  They are from two Long Island, New York, sites.  These fossils are named Carpolithus caumsettensis (Lloyd Neck site), a compression fossil; and Carpolithus slotnickii (Glen Cove site) and Carpolithus elongata (Lloyd Neck site).  Both Carpolithus slotnickii and C. elongata are casts of limonite. Carpolithus caumsettensis is referable to the Araceae: Aroideae; C. slotnickii is referable to the Rosaceae: Amygdaloideae; and C. elongata is comparable to a species in the Passifloraceae (Passiflora tarminiana).
