Abstract:The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of cone snail Conus capitaneus, a kind of worm-hunting sea snails, was performed by next-generation sequencing. The mitogenome is 15,829 bp in length, including 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes (12S and 16S rRNA) and 1 control region. It has an overall base composition of A (25.6%), T (36.6%), C (16.3%) and G (21.5%). It shows 79.8% identity with C. tribblei, which also belongs to worm-hunting sea snail. The phylogenetic analysis was conducted with 21 closely related species to assess their phylogenetic relationship. The complete mitogenome of the C. capitaneus provides important DNA molecular data for further phylogeography.
