Resemblances between cephalopods and fish 

Consider the octopus

Being attacked by an octopus gives the opportunity to marvel at how convergent evolution created similar organs and senses in cephalopod and man.

NEMERTINES AS POSSIBLE ANCESTORS OF THE VERTEBRATES

TLDR
1. Primitive vertebrates have many characters which do not appear to be immediately represented in any obvious precursor, but these characters are nevertheless represented in many primitive vertebrates.

Cognition and Recognition in the Cephalopod Mollusc Octopus vulgaris: Coordinating Interaction with Environment and Conspecifics

TLDR
The examination of data and observations available provide the basis for asking new stimulating questions about the cognitive abilities of octopuses and their allies and open novel scenarios for future comparative research.

The Statocysts of Squid

TLDR
Among all aquatic invertebrates, these sense organs reach the highest level of complexity in octopod and decapod cephalopods, with receptor systems for the detection of both linear (gravity) and angular accelerations.

Prey-handling behaviour of Octopus vulgaris (Mollusca, Cephalopoda) on Bivalve preys

The Evolution of Flexible Behavioral Repertoires in Cephalopod Molluscs

TLDR
Evidence is outlined that although competition with vertebrates has left a deep impression on the brains and behavior of cephalopods, the original reorganization of their complex brains from their molluscan ancestors might have been forged in ancient seas millions of years before the advent of bony fishes.

Functional anatomy inspires recognition of Ediacaran Dickinsonia and similar fossils as Mollusca (Coleoidea) and precursors of Cambrian Nectocaridids and extant cuttlefish and squid

  • B. Cohen

  • 2016
A functional interpretation of the problematic Ediacaran fossils Podolimurus and similar organisms such as Dickinsonia indicates that they are hitherto unrecognized members of Mollusca: Coleoidea and

Octopus nervous system

Comparing the body structure and way of life of the modern cephalopods with those of the nautilus and other molluscs reveals how dramatically these animals have changed over the course of evolution.

CEPHALOPOD PHYLOGENY AND CLASSIFICATION

1. A mode of origin of cephalopod buoyancy, by withdrawal of the animal from the apex of the shell followed by withdrawal of liquid from the resulting space, is suggested.

Daily Age Markings on the Shell of Cuttlefishes

MUCH information concerning the growth of the shell in mollusca is available, and this indicates the close relation between growth of shell and physiological periodicity of the living body1.

TLDR
This book discusses zoogeography of the sea in the context of the natural history of the Mediterranean Sea and its role in human evolution.

TLDR
The species is shown to be closely allied to Grimalditeuthis bonplandi and it is indicated that both species should be included in the family Chiroteuthidae.

Major divisions of the Cephalopoda

TLDR
Factual and theoretical evidence combine to suggest that many of the features of the Dibranchiata may have developed in their ancestors included in the Nautiloidea, and that many in Nautilus are derived, or possibly connected with, crucial changes in mode of life now known to have occurred in its ancestry.
