Both the ML and BI analyses divided Decapodiformes into three parts: Oegopsida, Myopsida, and Sepiida; the Oegopsida consisted of Ommastrephidae, Architeuthidae, Bathyteuthidae, and Enoploteuthidae; the Myopsida only had one family and the Loliginidae contained eight species.
The mt genomes of Ommastrephidae and Enoploteuthidae contain six duplicated genes, including COI, COII, COIII, ATP 6 and 8, and tRNAAsp (Fig.
The families include Ancistrocheiridae (ANC), Argonautidae (ARG), Bolitaenidae (BOL), Chiroteuthidae (CHI), Coryphaenidae (COR), Cranchiidae (CRA), Delphinidae (DEL), Engraulidae (ENG), Enoploteuthidae (ENO), Enteroctopodidae (ENT), Galatheidae (GAL), Gonatidae (GON), Histioteuthidae (HIS), Loliginidae (LOL), Macrouridae (MAC), Mastigoteuthidae (MAS), Merlucciidae (MER), Myctophidae (MYC), Octopodidae (OCD), Octopoteuthidae (OCT), Oeogopsidae (OEO), Ommastrephidae (OMA), Onychoteuthidae (ONY), Pholidoteuthidae (PHO), Scombridae (SCO), Sphyraenidae (SPH), Thysanoteuthidae (THY), Tremoctopodidae (TRE), Vampyroteuthidae (VAM), and Vitreledonellidae (VIT).

Squid diversity in the micronekton of the Eastern Tropical Pacific is low, with only 15 species reported from the families Enoploteuthidae, Onychoteutidae, Cranchiidae, Histioteuthidae and Ommastrephidae (Blackburn, 1968).
The most abundant families were Enoploteuthidae, Ommastrephidae, Cranchiidae and Onychoteuthidae, with slightly different values between periods (Table 2).

Non-ommastrephid cephalopods were identified in many of the tows, most commonly as taxa in the teuthid families Enoploteuthidae, Onychoteuthidae, Gonatidae, Chtenopterygidae, Cranchiidae, and Brachioteuthidae and in the octopod genera Argonauta and Tremoctopus; all have previously been reported from the ETP (Ueyanagi and Nonaka, 1993; Vecchione, 1999).
