Abstract The peanut worm Sipunculus nudus is an economic important species in the fishery and aquaculture in Indo-West Pacific. However, it is a species complex consisting of cryptic species, which can be difficult to identify based on morphology. Here, we report the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of S. nudus from Beibu Bay. The mitogenome has 15,375 base pairs and made up of total of 38 genes (13 protein-coding, 23 transfer RNAs, and two ribosomal RNAs), and a putative control region… 
The complete mitochondrial genome of Chinese endemic specie Phascolosoma esculenta (Sipuncula, Phascolosomatidae) from Beibu Bay
This study adds second mitogenome of P. esculenta to provide useful genetic information for future conservation and exploitation of this economic valuable marine benthic invertebrate.
A distinct mitogenome of peanut worm Sipunculus nudus (Sipuncula, Sipunculidae) from Beibu Gulf
A mitochondrial DNA sequence by Illumina high throughput sequencing was carried out on muscle and determined the complete mitogenome of peanut worm, which comprises of 37 genes as in the typical mitochondrial gene arrangement of Sipunculus.
The first complete mitochondrial genome of Siphonosoma from Siphonosoma cumanense (Sipuncula, Sipunculidae)
This study was the first available complete mitogenomes of Siphonosoma and will provide useful genetic information for future phylogenetic and taxonomic classification of Sipuncula.
De novo transcriptome analysis of the sandworm ( Sipunculus nudus ) and identification of differentially expressed genes associated with body size 1
The transcriptome of the body wall muscle of the sandworm at different growth rates was analyzed and several genes that had a possible association with individual growth variation were identified, providing insight into the growth mechanism of sandworm and will further assist in the selective breeding of improved strains of this species.


DNA barcoding reveals cryptic diversity in the peanut worm Sipunculus nudus
Analysis of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene sequences among S. nudus revealed high genetic variation and paraphyletic relationships indicated misidentification and/or cryptic diversity may be present in the genus Sipunculus.
Complete mitochondrial genome of Sipunculus nudus (Sipuncula, Sipunculidae)
The complete mitochondrial genome of Sipunculus nudus collected from the coast of southeast China was determined, including 13 protein-coding genes, 2 r RNA genes, 23 tRNA genes, and a putative control region (CR).
Sipunculus nudus Linnaeus, 1766 (Sipuncula): cosmopolitan or a group of pseudo‐cryptic species? An integrated molecular and morphological approach
The phylogenetic and morphological analyses do not favor the cosmopolitan status of S. nudus, suggesting instead that it constitutes a complex of morphologically similar but distinguishable species.
Re-evaluating the phylogeny of Sipuncula through transcriptomics.

Reconstructing mitochondrial genomes directly from genomic next-generation sequencing reads—a baiting and iterative mapping approach
The approach overcomes the limitations of traditional strategies for obtaining mitochondrial genomes for species with little or no mitochondrial sequence information at hand and represents a fast and highly efficient in silico alternative to laborious conventional strategies relying on initial long-range PCR.
