BackgroundThe mitochondrial genome is important for studying genome evolution as well as reconstructing the phylogeny of organisms. Complete mitochondrial genome sequences have been reported for more than 2200 metazoans, mainly vertebrates and arthropods. To date, from a total of about 1275 described nemertean species, only three complete and two partial mitochondrial DNA sequences from nemerteans have been published. Here, we report the entire mitochondrial genomes for two more nemertean… 
Complete mitochondrial genome sequences of two parasitic/commensal nemerteans, Gononemertes parasita and Nemertopsis tetraclitophila (Nemertea: Hoplonemertea)
TLDR
Gene order is highly conserved within the order Monostilifera, particularly within the Distromatonemertea, and the special lifestyle of G. parasita and N. tetraclitophila does not bring significant variations to the overall structures of their mitogenomes in comparison with free-living hoplonemerteans.
A description of the complete mitochondrial genomes of Amphiporus formidabilis, Prosadenoporus spectaculum and Nipponnemertes punctatula (Nemertea: Hoplonemertea: Monostilifera)
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genomes of three Hoplonemertea species, Amphiporus formidabilis, Prosadenoporus spectaculum and Nipponnemertes punctatula, which are 14,616, 14,655 and 15,354 bp in length, are sequenced.
Sequencing of the complete mitochondrial genome of a fish-parasitic flatworm Paratetraonchoides inermis (Platyhelminthes: Monogenea): tRNA gene arrangement reshuffling and implications for phylogeny
TLDR
This study shows that gene order within monopisthocotylid mt genomes is evolving at uneven rates, which creates misleading evolutionary signals, and corroborates the necessity to generate more molecular data for this group of parasitic animals.
Evolution of mitochondrial gene order in Annelida.
Three new Diplozoidae mitogenomes expose unusual compositional biases within the Monogenea class: implications for phylogenetic studies
TLDR
This study sequenced and characterized mitogenomes belonging to three Diplozoidae family species, and conducted comparative genomic and phylogenomic analyses for the entire Monogenea class, showing that nad2, atp6 and nad6 (fast-evolving) would be better candidates than cox1 (slow-evolved) for species identification and population genetics studies in Diplozooidae.
The Complete Maternally and Paternally Inherited Mitochondrial Genomes of the Endangered Freshwater Mussel Solenaia carinatus (Bivalvia: Unionidae) and Implications for Unionidae Taxonomy
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses of Unionoida indicate that S. carinatus belongs to Gonideinae, which is supported by the morphological characteristics of glochidia and the phylogenetic trees advocate the classification of sampled Unionidae species into four subfamilies: Gonideinee, Ambleminae, Anodontinaee, and Unioninae.
A transcriptomic approach to ribbon worm systematics (nemertea): resolving the pilidiophora problem.
TLDR
This work reassesses the relatively well-studied phylogeny of the phylum Nemertea (ribbon worms) by using a phylogenomic approach using Illumina-based de novo assembled transcriptomes and automatic orthology prediction methods and observes that concatenation was the best solution, and the results should settle prior debates on nemertean phylogeny.

Complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Urechis caupo, a representative of the phylum Echiura
TLDR
This is the first description of a complete mitochondrial genome sequence of a representative of the phylum Echiura, that of the fat innkeeper worm, Urechis caupo, which shares many features with those of the few studied annelids, including the common usage of ATG start codons, unusual among animal mtDNAs.
Phylogeny and mitochondrial gene order variation in Lophotrochozoa in the light of new mitogenomic data from Nemertea
TLDR
The first complete mitochondrial genome record for a member of the Nemertea is presented and it is hypothesized that some regions of the genome have a higher chance for intramolecular recombination than others and gene order data have to be analysed carefully to detect convergent rearrangement events.
Evolution of pulmonate gastropod mitochondrial genomes: comparisons of gene organizations of Euhadra, Cepaea and Albinaria and implications of unusual tRNA secondary structures.
TLDR
The acceptor stems of many tRNAs show a considerable number of mismatched basepairs, indicating that the RNA editing process recently demonstrated in Euhadra is widespread in the pulmonate gastropods.
The mitochondrial genomes of two nemerteans, Cephalothrix sp. (Nemertea: Palaeonemertea) and Paranemertes cf. peregrina (Nemertea: Hoplonemertea)
The mitochondrial genome sequences were determined for two species of nemerteans, Cephalothrix sp. (15,800 bp sequenced, near-complete) and Paranemertes cf. peregrina (14,558 bp, complete). As seen
The complete mitochondrial genome of the bag-shelter moth Ochrogaster lunifer (Lepidoptera, Notodontidae)
TLDR
The mitochondrial genome of O. lunifer is the first representative of superfamily Noctuoidea that account for about 40% of all described Lepidoptera and shares many features with other known lepidopteran genomes, differs however for its low A+T content and marked C-skew.
The mitochondrial genome of the ascalaphid owlfly Libelloides macaronius and comparative evolutionary mitochondriomics of neuropterid insects
TLDR
The mitochondrial genome of the ascalaphid owlfly Libelloides macaronius is described and compared with the known neuropterid mitochondrial genomes: Megaloptera, Neuroptera and Raphidioptera, and comparative analyses are further extended to other endopterygotan orders.
Mitochondrial genomes of Galathealinum, Helobdella, and Platynereis: sequence and gene arrangement comparisons indicate that Pogonophora is not a phylum and Annelida and Arthropoda are not sister taxa.
TLDR
Comparisons of relative gene arrangements and of the nucleotide and inferred amino acid sequences among these and other published taxa provide strong support for an annelid-mollusk clade that excludes arthropods, and for the inclusion of pogonophorans within Annelida, rather than giving them separate phylum status.
