In the 1970s anatase and quartz specimens from this large area was labelled "Tysse". Wilson (1976) f.ex. refers to a find of anatase from Tysse, Hardangervidda, Norway. The specimens pictured in Wilson (1976) looks very similar to those from the Matskorhæ locality. The label "Tysse" was probably given by collectors to keep this and other localities in this area and nearby a secret.
