The invertebrates is the group of animals that have no backbone. In principle, this includes all animals with the exception of the vertebrate. Given the vertebrates is relatively only a limited group of shapes is a bit of a lump term for most animals, and taxonomic relevance of 'invertebrates' is therefore limited.

Other groups of invertebrates, such as eg. worms (Annelida) and flatworms (Platyhelminthes), are only very rarely found as fossils.
