The Position of the Ammonoidea within the Cephalopoda

Abstract

The position of the Ammonoidea within the Cephalopoda is no longer in much dispute. Almost all those who study cephalopods agree that the Ammonoidea are more closely related to the Coleoidea than to the other ectocochleate cephalopods, i.e., the Nautiloidea (Jacobs and Landman, 1994). There also can be no serious doubts that the Ammonoidea were derived from bactritids (Jacobs and Landman, 1994). However, it is still worth the effort to state more precisely the position of the Ammonoidea within the Coleoidea clade (= Neocephalopoda) using a cladistic approach. Berthold and Engeser (1987) and Engeser (1990b) discussed the position of the Ammonoidea only in general.
