A novel type of parametrically excited dissipative solitons is unveiled. It differs from the well-known solitons with constant phase by an intrinsically dynamical evolving shell-type phase front. Analytical and numerical characterizations are proposed, displaying quite a good agreement. In one spatial dimension, the system shows three types of stationary solitons with shell-like structure whereas in two spatial dimensions it displays only one, characterized by a π-phase jump far from the soliton position.
