Nucleotide sequences of part (1,101 bp) of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase c subunit I (COI) gene were determined for two specimens of Calyptogena kawamurai collected in Kashima Nada and Suruga Bay, respectively. These sequences were identical to each other and to those from many individuals of Calyptogena solidissima, i.e., 11 of 12 specimens from a seep area in Nankai Trough, two of 20 from hydrothermal-vent fields in Okinawa Trough, and one of 14 from a seep area on Kuroshima Knoll.
