Abstract Eisenia nordenskioldi is an earthworm widespread in Northern Asia and adjacent regions. It is known for its high morphological, karyotypic, and genetic variation, and contains two subspecies, the pigmented E. n. nordenskioldi and the unpigmented E. n. pallida. We obtained almost complete sequences of mitochondrial genomes (without the control region and parts of the flanking tRNAs) for six genetic lineages of E. n. nordenskioldi, two for E. n. pallida, as well as for three congeneric… Expand

Species Delimitation of the Eisenia nordenskioldi Complex (Oligochaeta, Lumbricidae) Using Transcriptomic Data
It is found that E. nordenskioldi is monophyletic and is split into two clades, one of which includes the pigmented genetic lineages widespread in the northern and western parts of the distribution, and the second one originating from the southern and southeastern part of the species' range and representing both pigmented and non-pigmented forms.

Characterization of the complete mitochondrial genome of Drawida gisti (Metagynophora, Moniligastridae) and comparison with other Metagynophora species.
The complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of Drawida gisti was sequenced and compared with the mitogenomes of other Metagynophora species, andylogenetic analysis suggested that the Moniligastridae contained Drawida, which is a primitive Metaglynophora group. Expand

Transcriptomic analysis confirms differences among nuclear genomes of cryptic earthworm lineages living in sympatry
BackgroundMany earthworm species demonstrate significant cryptic diversity, with several highly diverged mitochondrial lineages found within most of the taxa studied to date. The status ofExpand
Cryptic genetic lineages in Eisenia nordenskioldi pallida (Oligochaeta, Lumbricidae)
A high number of cryptic lineages uncovered in the two subspecies call for a close examination of their status as potential species, possibly with the help of additional markers, and for additional molecular genetic investigation of either type specimen of these subspecies or of the topotypical populations.

Cryptic diversity within the Nordenskiold's earthworm, Eisenia nordenskioldi subsp. nordenskioldi (Lumbricidae, Annelida)
Phylogeographic patterns within the lineages may suggest that their distributions was not affected by Pleistocene glaciations, and, therefore, may be a useful source of information for biogeographic reconstructions of Northern Eurasia. Expand

Phylogeography of Eisenia nordenskioldi nordenskioldi (Lumbricidae, Oligochaeta) from the north of Asia
Eisenia nordenskioldi subsp. nordenskioldi is an earthworm species inhabiting a large part of Asia, from approximately the 40° of north latitude to the shores of the Arctic Ocean. This taxon is knownExpand
Evolution of mitochondrial gene order in Annelida.
It is demonstrated that the supposedly highly conserved mitochondrial gene order suggested for Annelida is restricted to Pleistoannelida, representing the ground pattern of this group and the first mitochondrial genomes in AnnelIDA that encode genes on both strands are reported. Expand

Mitochondrial genomes of Clymenella torquata (Maldanidae) and Riftia pachyptila (Siboglinidae): evidence for conserved gene order in annelida.
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. Expand
