Middle Ordovician calymenids from the Oslo Region are described and illustrated. Seventeen (inciuding both named and unnamed) species and four genera (Pharostoma Hawle & Corda, 1847, Flexicalymene Shirley, 1936, Gravicalymene Shirley, 1936 and Sthenarocalymene gen. nov.) have been recognised. Four new species (P. narinosum, F. (Onnicalymene) scabustula, G. capitovata, S. lirella), one new genus (Sthenarocalymene) and one new subfamily (Flexicalymeninae) are established. Gravicalymene and Sthenarocalymene give way to Flexicalymene and Pharostoma during the lower part of the Chasmops Series. None of the genera is confined to Norway. At various times Norwegian calymenids show affinities with those from the British Isles, Estonia, Sweden, and N America.
