Third one may be impression of pycnodont teeth.

@Tidgy's Dad May know. He is into the Ordovician and he lives in Morocco. 

Thanks, Kim. 

Hi, Malek, you probably already know more about the Fezouata than anyone here. 

I think the first one may be some kind of carpoid. 

The fourth one, a holothuroid? 

But the last one could be a raptorial arthropod limb ..........or maybe a graptolite! 

Fascinating! 

I must get down there one day! :)

Hi Tidgy's Dad

Yes i know a lot about Fezouata fossils , but still too many new finds that need description.

Indeed, and some of these are probably not described at all yet, many others to be found too, I'm sure. :)

Frontiers of science stuff, very exciting!
