Abstract

The first mitochondrial genome sequences of Aegista and Dolicheulota belonging to Bradybaenidae are described in this report. Mitogenomic sequences were generated from Illumina paired-end sequencing. The complete mitogenome of Aegista diversifamilia was 14,039 bp in length and nearly complete mitogenome of Dolicheulota formosensis was 14,237 bp. Both mitogenomes consisted of 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), 2 ribosomal RNA genes, and 22 transfer RNA genes. Most genes were overlapped with neighboring genes that the overlapping regions ranged from 2 to 64 bp in A. diversifamilia and from 1 to 45 bp in D. formosensis. Novel gene arrangement, tRNA-Tyr-ND3-tRNA-Trp, was identified in A. diversifamilia, whereas D. formosensis showed identical gene order to other Bradybaenidae mitogenomes. Maximum likelihood phylogenetic tree suggested Aegista as a sister clade to Euhadra and Dolicheulota. Bradybaenidae is monophyly sister clade to Camaenidae.
