In this essay we propose the edition of some unpublished papers of Francesco Todaro (1839–1918), at that time professor of human anatomy at the University of Rome; these papers collect the results of the research Todaro was carrying out on a sense organ in the Salps, which constitute an interesting chapter in the history of comparative embryology and morphology, in the framework of the debate on the phylogenetic relationships of chordates.
