Cyrtorizoceras minneapolis, from Sweet (1964).

Belongs within: Oncoceratidae.

Cyrtorizoceras was a genus of small cyrtoconic oncocerids from the Middle Ordovician. Species have also been assigned to this genus from the Silurian, but probably represent convergent forms (Sweet 1964).

Characters (from Sweet 1964): Compressed cyrtocones; dorsal and ventral profiles diverging constantly adorally, sides converging slightly over body chamber. Aperture with deep hyponomic sinus; surface obscurely or prominently costate. Siphuncle subventral, slender; segments slightly expanded, probably empty.
