Eocene

The Middle Eocene (Bartonian) is represented by the Avon Park Formation and crops out in a limited area in Levy and Citrus Counties. In those counties, the Avon Park limestone is succeeded by the Inglis Member, considered to be part of the Moodys Branch Formation by Palmer (1953). 

The Upper Eocene (Priabonian) is represented by the Ocala Limestone and is exposed near Ocala, Marion County.

The floowing Olivoidea are recognised from the Eocene of Florida:
