Orthoceras ("straight horn") is a genus of extinct nautiloid cephalopod. This genus is sometimes called Orthoceratites.
Orthoceras fossils are common and have a global distribution, occurring in any marine rock, especially limestones. Well-known examples occur in Morocco, Scandinavia, the Alps, and Iowa. 
Orthoceras can be found in sizes ranging from less than a centimeter to more than 14 feet long. Orthoceras is the ancestor of Ammonites and squids
