Abstract

The complete mitochondrial genome of Ridgeia piscesae (Polychaeta, Siboglinidae), one of the dominant taxa in deep-sea hydrothermal vents, is reported here for the first time. The R. piscesae mitogenome is 15,002 bp in total length and includes 13 protein-coding gene sequences, small and large rRNA sequences and 22 tRNA sequences. All genes are encoded on the heavy strand. The mitochondrial genomes of R. piscesae and other six polychaete species have a conserved gene order.
