Abstract

We sequenced the complete mitogenomes of two eastern tropical Pacific gorgonians, Muricea crassa and Muricea purpurea , using NGS technologies. The assembled mi- togenomes of M. crassa and M. purpurea were 19,586 bp and 19,358 bp in length, with a GC-content ranging from 36.0% to 36.1%, respectively. The two mitogenomes had the same gene arrangement consisting of 14 protein-coding genes, two rRNAs and one tRNA. Mitogenome identity was 98.5%. The intergenic regions between COB and NAD6 and between NAD5 and NAD4 were polymorphic in length with a high level of nu- cleotide diversity. Based on a concatenated dataset of 14 mitochondrial protein-coding genes we inferred the phylogeny of 26 octocoral species.
