Cephalopods are extraordinary molluscs equipped with vertebrate‐like intelligence and a unique buoyancy system for locomotion. A growing body of evidence from the fossil record, embryology and Bayesian molecular divergence estimations provides a comprehensive picture of their origins and evolution. Cephalopods evolved during the Cambrian (∼530 Ma) from a monoplacophoran‐like mollusc in which the conical, external shell was modified into a chambered buoyancy apparatus. During the mid‐Palaeozoic… Expand
Molecular clocks indicate turnover and diversification of modern coleoid cephalopods during the Mesozoic Marine Revolution
TLDR
Divergence estimates highlight the modern diversity of coleoid cephalopods emerging in the Mesozoic Marine Revolution, a period that also witnessed the radiation of most ray-finned fish groups in addition to several other marine vertebrates. Expand
The evolution of molluscs
TLDR
Gene expression data indicate that key regulators involved in anterior–posterior patterning lost this function and were co‐opted into the evolution of taxon‐specific novelties in conchiferans, challenging traditional hypotheses that molluscs gradually evolved complex phenotypes from simple, worm‐like animals. Expand
Nectocaridid ecology, diversity, and affinity: early origin of a cephalopod-like body plan
TLDR
The morphology of the tentacles and fins are revised, and mouthparts and phosphatized gills are described for the first time, and a mathematical analysis supports the presence of the earliest known camera-type eyes, and fluid mechanical considerations suggest that the funnel is optimized for efficient jet propulsion in a low Reynolds number flow regime. Expand
A molecular palaeobiological perspective on aculiferan evolution
TLDR
Both fossil data and molecular divergence estimates find that modern chitons (the crown group) originated in the Carboniferous period (about 340 Ma) and that the major group of chiton with slitted insertion plates (Chitonida) originatedIn the Permian (about 260–270 Ma). Expand
The origins of molluscs
TLDR
The interrelationships and evolutionary history of molluscs have seen great advances in the last decade, and it is shown that the aplacophorans are sister group to polyplacphorans (chitons), corroborating palaeontological and embryological evolutionary scenarios in which a plesiomorphic condition for mollUScs as a whole is not represented. Expand
An Ordovician nectocaridid hints at an endocochleate origin of Cephalopoda
TLDR
A new nectocaridid is document from the Whetstone Gulf Formation, extending the group's range into the Late Ordovician and indicating a trend towards increased metabolic efficiency through the course of Cambrian–Ordovician evolution. Expand
An Eocene orthocone from Antarctica shows convergent evolution of internally shelled cephalopods
TLDR
This study presents the first evidence for an evolutionary lineage of internally shelled cephalopods with independent origin from Bactritoidea/Coleoidea, indicating convergent evolution with the subclass Coleoidesa. Expand
The locomotion system of Mesozoic Coleoidea (Cephalopoda) and its phylogenetic significance
A morphological comparison of shell-muscle contacts in coleoid cephalopods mainly from the Early Jurassic (Toarcian) Posidonia Shales of Holzmaden (Germany), the Middle Jurassic (Callovian) OxfordExpand
A phylogeny of fossil and living neocoleoid cephalopods
TLDR
A morphological data matrix including both extinct and extant taxa is presented and a octopodiform interpretation for most fossil coleoids is suggested and the fossil sister taxon to the octopods is suggested to be Plesioteuthididae. Expand
The gladiuses in coleoid cephalopods: homology, parallelism, or convergence?
TLDR
The present contribution reviews the “similarity” of the gladius, the chitinous shell rudiment in the dorsal mantle that provides rigid attachment sites for the locomotory-relevant musculature in living and Mesozoic gladius-bearing octobrachians. Expand

Evolution of the cephalopod head complex by assembly of multiple molluscan body parts: Evidence from Nautilus embryonic development
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the embryonic organs exhibit body plans that are primarily bilateral and antero‐posteriorly elongated at stereotyped positions, and suggest that extensions of the collar‐funnel compartment and free epidermal folds derived from multiple topological foot regions may play an important role in forming the head complex, which is thought to be an important feature during the body plan transition. Expand
Primitive soft-bodied cephalopods from the Cambrian
TLDR
This work reinterpretes the problematic Middle Cambrian animal Nectocaris pteryx as a primitive (that is, stem-group), non-mineralized cephalopod, based on new material from the Burgess Shale, and indicates that primitive cepinghalopods lacked a mineralized shell, were hyperbenthic, and were presumably carnivorous. Expand
The origins of cephalopod body plans: A geometrical and developmental basis for the evolution of vertebrate-like organ systems
TLDR
The cephalopod body plans are characterized, set against those of the other bilaterians, in the light of recent data from paleontology, embryology, and molecular gene expression patterns to provide a review and new interpretation with an emphasis on the topographic transition of the soft parts that is shaped by a shared concentric circle or ovoid pattern in the embryos and adults of extant or fossil molluscs. Expand
Adaptive evolution in Paleozoic coiled cephalopods
TLDR
The general trends of decreasing mean origination and extinction rates during the Paleozoic are interpreted to reflect a successive stabilization of the coiled cephalopod assemblages. Expand
Brachiopod Identity of the Alleged Monoplacophoran Ancestors of Cephalopods
TLDR
Musculature of Angarella in some aspects resembles that of the Early Cambrian mobergellans with phosphatic shells, but in the calcitic shell structure it is similar to the craniopsid brachiopods. Expand
Divergence time estimates for major cephalopod groups: evidence from multiple genes
TLDR
The data support a Paleozoic origin of the Orders Vampyromorpha, Octopoda and the majority of the extant higher level decapodiform taxa and appear to have been obscured due to an ancient diversification of this group. Expand
The evolution of coleoid cephalopods and their present biodiversity and ecology
TLDR
The roles that transitions between pelagic and benthic habitats played in the evolution of cephalopods are noted, and the possibility is advanced that the most recent "oceanic anoxic event" may have established a time marker for the divergence of some oegopsid families. Expand
An Early Cambrian problematic fossil: Vetustovermis and its possible affinities
TLDR
All the characters displayed in this 525 million-year old soft-bodied animal fail to demonstrate clear affinity with molluscs or any other known extant or extinct animal groups, but argue for representing an independently evolved animal group, which flourished in Early Cambrian and possibly in Middle Cambrian time. Expand
The bearing of the new Late Cambrian monoplacophoran genus Knightoconus upon the origin of the Cephalopoda
TLDR
Hypothetical reconstructions of molluscan anatomy support the notion that cephalopods may have been derived directly from a hypseloconid having a high, slightly curved, multiseptate, bilaterally symmetrical shell, by the subsequent development of a siphuncle. Expand
SOME LESSER KNOWN FEATURES OF THE ANCIENT CEPHALOPOD ORDER ELLESMEROCERIDA (NAUTILOIDEA, CEPHALOPODA)
TLDR
The shape of the body chamber and of the soft body attachment structures has led to a reconstruction of an ellesmeroceratid soft body that is organized like a primitive conchiferan mollusc, and a tryblidian cephalopod ancestor is supported. Expand
