We report a contiguous region of more than half (> 7,500 nt) of the mitochondrial genomes for Platynereis dumerii (Annelida: Polychaeta), Helobdella robusta (Annelida: Hirudinida), and Galathealinum brachiosum (Pogonophora: Perviata). The relative arrangements of all 22 genes identified for Helobdella and Galathealinum are identical to one another and to their arrangements in the mtDNA of the previously studied oligochaete annelid Lumbricus. In contrast, Platynereis differs from these taxa in… 
Mitochondrial genomes of Clymenella torquata (Maldanidae) and Riftia pachyptila (Siboglinidae): evidence for conserved gene order in annelida.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of DNA sequence, amino acid sequence, and gene order all support the recent hypothesis that Sipuncula and Annelida are closely related, suggesting that gene order is conserved across annelids.
The complete sequence of the mitochondrial genome of Nautilus macromphalus (Mollusca: Cephalopoda)
TLDR
Nautilus macromphalus mtDNA contains an expected gene content that has experienced few rearrangements since the evolutionary split between cephalopod mollusk and polyplacophorans, and implies that mutational bias during replication also plays a role.
The Complete Sequence of the Mitochondrial Genome of the Chamberednautilus (Mollusca: Cephalopoda)
TLDR
The mitochondrial genome of a cephalopodmollusk, the Chambered Nautilus, is 16,258 nts in length and 59.5 percentA+T, both values that are typical of animal mitochondrial genomes, and contains an unusual number of non-coding regions.
The complete mitochondrial genome of Pallisentis celatus (Acanthocephala) with phylogenetic analysis of acanthocephalans and rotifers.
TLDR
It is indicated that acanthocephalans may be just clustered among groups of rotifers, and the resolving of phylogenetic relationship among all classes of acanthOcephalans and between them and rotifer may require further sampling and more molecular data.
The making of a branching annelid: an analysis of complete mitochondrial genome and ribosomal data of Ramisyllis multicaudata
TLDR
A scenario in which the postembryonic addition of segments that occurs in most syllids, their huge diversity of reproductive modes, and their ability to regenerate lost parts, in combination, have provided an evolutionary basis to develop a new branching body pattern as realised in Ramisyllis is proposed.
Characterization of the mitochondrial genome of Diphyllobothrium latum (Cestoda: Pseudophyllidea) – implications for the phylogeny of eucestodes
TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial genome was determined for the fish tapeworm Diphyllobothrium latum and high nodal support and phylogenetic congruence between different methods suggest that mt genomes may be of utility in resolving ordinal relationships within the cestodes.
The mitochondrial genome of the oribatid mite Paraleius leontonychus: new insights into tRNA evolution and phylogenetic relationships in acariform mites
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the newly sequenced mt genome and previously published data on other acariform mites confirms paraphyly of the Oribatida and an origin of the Astigmata within the O ribatida.

Mitochondrial gene arrangement of the horseshoe crab Limulus polyphemus L.: conservation of major features among arthropod classes.
TLDR
High degree of similarity of mitochondrial gene arrangements within arthropods is striking, since some taxa last shared a common ancestor before the Cambrian, and contrasts with the extensive mtDNA rearrangements occasionally observed within some other metazoan phyla.
The mitochondrial genome of the hemichordate Balanoglossus carnosus and the evolution of deuterostome mitochondria.
TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial genome of the hemichordate Balanoglossus carnosus (acorn worm) was determined, andylogenetic trees estimated from the inferred protein sequences indicate that hemichordsates are a sister group of echinoderms.
Complete sequence, gene arrangement, and genetic code of mitochondrial DNA of the cephalochordate Branchiostoma floridae (Amphioxus)
TLDR
The 15,083-nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) of the lancelet Branchiostoma floridae (Chordata: Cephalochordata) is determined; it shares the genetic code variations found in vertebrate mtDNAs except that AGA = serine, a code variation found in many invertebrate phyla but not in vertebrates.
Complete sequence of the amphioxus (Branchiostoma lanceolatum) mitochondrial genome: relations to vertebrates
TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial DNA of the amphioxus Branchiostoma lanceolatum has been determined, and the notion that prochordates may be viewed as the brother group of vertebrates is reinforced.
Mitochondrial Genes Collectively Suggest the Paraphyly of Crustacea with Respect to Insecta
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis using amino acid sequences of the seven corresponding polypeptides supports a sister-taxon status for mollusks–annelid and arthropods and suggests that crustaceans are paraphyletic with respect to insects.
Annelida and Arthropoda are Not Sister Taxa: A Phylogenetic Analysis of Spiralian Metazoan Morphology
TLDR
This study presents a new analysis of 141 independently assembled characters, purported to represent the current state of knowledge of metazoan morphology and embryology, and results in robust support of the Eutrochozoa hypothesis.
Complete DNA sequence of the mitochondrial genome of the black chiton, Katharina tunicata.
TLDR
All possible codons except the stop codons TAA and TAG are used in the protein-encoding genes, and Katharina mtDNA appears to use the same variation of the mitochondrial genetic code that is used in Drosophila and Mytilus.
Complete sequence of the mitochondrial DNA of the annelid worm Lumbricus terrestris.
We have determined the complete nucleotide (nt) sequence of the mitochondrial genome of an oligochaete annelid, the earthworm Lumbricus terrestris. This genome contains the 37 genes typical of
The articulation of annelids
TLDR
The Annelida should not be used unless relationships within the Articulata are resolved to show it is a monophyletic taxon, and the Pogonophora should revert to the original family name Lamellisabellidae Uschakov, 1933.
Cladistics and polychaetes
TLDR
A series of cladistic analyses assesses the status and membership of the taxon Polychaeta and provides a new classification, which does not use Linnaean categories, and comprises two clades, the Scolecida and Palpata.
