Here are a few pieces I've found in the Etobicoke creek, Mississauga, Ontario.

The last one I believe to be an orthocone Nautilus phragmocone.

Neat finds!

Your first unknown looks like it might be a pygidium of an Isotelus sp. trilobite.

Thanks for posting these. :)

Cool finds. :) I agree that your unknown is an Isotelus fragment.

Your last unknown is a Gorbyoceras or closely related genus.  The presence of both annular ribs (ribs that encircle the shell) and longitudinal striations distinguish these nautiloids from other Ordovician genera that have only annular ribs.

 

The other unknown is a piece of an Isotelus as others have noted already.

Oooh - I really like your last "unknown" - I've never found that type of orthoconic nautiloid myself - well done!!!
