Olfactores is a subphylum within the Chordata that comprises the Tunicata (Urochordata) and the Vertebrata (sometimes referred to as Craniata). Olfactores represent the overwhelming majority of the phylum Chordata, as the Cephalochordata are the only chordates not included in the clade.

Olfactores hypothesis

For long, the hypothesis that cephalochordata is sister taxon to craniata seemed to be widely accepted,[1] likely influenced by the morphological distinction of tunicata from other chordates, with cephalochordates even being nicknamed ‘honorary vertebrates’.[2] However, since 2006, studies based on the analysis of large sequence datasets strongly supported the Olfactores as a clade.[3][4] The name olfactores comes from Latin olfactus ("to smell"), due to the pharynx development as to include respiratory functions, in contrast to the lack of respiratory system and specialized sense organs seen in cephalochordates such as the lancelet.[5]
