A Ceratite is an ammonite-like creature with a shell that is often undulated and has ribs and knobs. The order Ceratitida belongs to the class of the squid-like animals (Cephalopoda) and the phylum of the shellfish (Mollusca). The suture lines are often typically undulated, but they lack the complexity of those of ammonites. Ceratitida are known from deposits from the Permian to the Triassic period.
