Abstract
We determined the complete mitochondrial (mt) genome sequence of the Japanese ghost shrimp, Nihonotrypaea japonica (Ortmann, 1891) (Crustacea, Decapoda, Axiidea). The N. japonica mt genome is firstly represented in infraorder Axiidea, which, together with infraorder Gebiidea, belonged to infraorder Thalassinidea until recently. The genome sequence of N. japonica is 15,274 bp in size, and the gene arrangement and transcriptional polarity are partially different from that of Japanese mud shrimp, Upogebia major, which belongs to infraorder Gebiidea. We present the mt genome of N. japonica, which could provide useful molecular information to construct a stable classification for infraorder Thalassinidea, and to better understand the phylogenetic relationship of Thalassinidea with other decapod groups.hich, together with infraorder Gebiidea, belonged to infraorder Thalassinidea until recently.
