- Ghost shrimps are burrowing decapods that serve as bioturbators and habitat providers in seafloor environments. The hydrothermal vent ghost shrimp, Paraglypturus tonganus, was collected from a hydrothermal vent in the Tonga Arc. This species has a mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of 15,924 bp in length with an AT content of 66.1%. The mitogenome was identical to the typical gene arrangement and transcriptional polarity of the infraorder Axiidea.
Paraglypturus tonganus showed 65.3 - 70.1% nucleotide similarity with the known mitogenomes
of other axiid shrimps. These results are useful for understanding the phylogenetic relationships
among the members of Axiidea within the decapods.
