Not yet. I guess those are the fossil species that are still buried but we 
haven't found yet...

They are said to be pretty common near football stadia. :-)

(As an aside, FeDex Field, the Redskins stadium, is built on top of what were 
once wonderfully productive Cretaceous marine
sediments, from which great ammonoids and nautiloids were recovered).
