For many years, many similar conical-shelled nautiloid species like this were lumped into the species Orthoceras regulare, what is now known as a wastebasket taxon. We now know there are over 2,500 unique fossil nautiloid species, leaving a confusing mess in the taxonomy record. These fossils are still commonly misattributed to Orthoceras.
