The complete mitochondrial genome of Limnoria quadripunctata, a marine wood-eating isopod crustacean, was determined from whole genome sequence data. The mitogenome is 16,503 bp in length and contains 39 genes: 13 protein-coding, 2 ribosomal RNA, 22 tRNA, two of which are repeated and a control region. The start codon most commonly used by the Limnoria protein-coding genes is ATN, as is the case in the two other available complete isopod mitogenomes. The gene arrangement differs among these complete isopod mitogenomes, as does the AT-content of H-strand protein-coding genes. The latter observations, coupled with the considerable nucleotide diversity observed between the isopod mitogenomes, support the idea that each isopod species belongs to a distinct lineage as implied by their current placement in separate suborders.
