Orthoceras is a genus of extinct Nautiloid Cephalopod.  These fossils are common and have a global distribution which occur in any marine rock, especially Limestone.  These are slender, elongated shells with the middle of the body chamber transversely constricted and a sub-central orthochoanitic siphuncle.  The surface is ornamented by a network of fine lirae or fine lines/ridges.
