The Calvert Cliffs in Maryland extend south from the area of Chesapeake Beach in northern Calvert County to Drum Point at the southern end of the county. Three geologic formations of Miocene age (approximately 6 to 20 million years old) are exposed in Calvert Cliffs. The layers of sediment are inclined slightly to the south, so that progressively younger beds are exposed from north to south along the cliffs. The oldest is the Calvert Formation on the northern end, progressing to the younger Choptank Formation and finally the youngest St. Marys Formation in the southern part.

These Calvert Cliffs Benedeni teeth are from an old collection (30 years old) and this collector loved Parotodus benedeni teeth. We discuss the rarity of Calvert Cliffs Benedeni teeth are much more rarer than Megs. These Benedeni teeth are extremely difficult to find!
