The complete mitochondrial genome of Nais communis was analyzed using the Illumina Hiseq 2000 platform. The length of the complete mitochondrial genome was 15,685 bp, and the data were submitted to NCBI (MW770354). The genome contained 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), 2 rRNA genes, 22 tRNA genes, and a putative control region. A phylogenetic tree was constructed based on the sequences of 13 PCGs identified by the maximum-likelihood method. Regardless of the lack of studies on the complete mitochondrial genome of other aquatic oligochaetes, the phylogenetic tree showed N. communis to cluster with Tubifex tubifex and Limnodrilus hoffmeisteri with high support value, and the freshwater oligochaete and earthworm groups to be sister groups.
