The first DNA sequence of a cephalopod was published in 1983 and the first molecular paper focusing on cephalopods was published in 1994. In this review we trace progress in the field. We examine the placement of Cephalopoda with respect to other molluscan classes and we examine relationships within Cephalopoda. We provide a summary tree of the relationships between cephalopod orders and we examine relationships of taxa within each of these orders. Although much knowledge has been gained over the past 20years, deeper-level relationships are still not well understood and there is still much scope for further research in this field. Genomic studies are likely to contribute significantly to our knowledge in the future.
