Identical Middle Ordovician microborings are described from eastern Canada and southern Norway. On the basis of size, shape, mode and angle of branching, and overall pattern and minor features, it is concluded that they are attributable to endolithic sponges. Endolithic sponges were more widespread in the Middle Ordovician than previously assumed and were not restricted to reef niches.--Modified journal abstract.
