Abstract

Clam shrimps (Spinicaudata) are a widespread and diverse group of
branchiopod crustaceans, yet few mitochondrial genomes have been
published for this taxonmic group. Here, we present the first
mitogenome of Leptestheria brevirostris from a rockpool ecosystem in
Botswana. Massively parallel sequencing of a single specimen facilitated
the reconstruction of the species’ 15,579 bp circularized mitogenome.
