The group Neocoleoidea includes several groups of marine Cephalopods, including octopus, squid and cuttlefish. Representatives of this group are known from the Early Devonian period to the present. They are composed mainly of soft tissues, making it difficult to fossilize well. Some groups have an internal shell (e.g. cuttlefish).

Complete specimens, such as this one from the Cretaceous of Lebanon, are known only from Lagerstätten
