Ogmocotyle spp. (Trematoda: Digenea: Notocotylidae) are neglected but important trematodes that can infect numerous mammal species, causing significant economic losses to livestock industries. However, there have been few studies on the molecular ecology of these trematodes. We amplified and sequenced the complete mitochondrial (mt) genome of Ogmocotyle sikae (14,307 bp). The gene content and gene arrangement of O. sikae mt genome was similar to that of Dicrocoelium chinensis, except that trnE and trnG were reversed. Phylogenetic analysis of O. sikae and selected parasites using Bayesian inference was performed based on concatenated amino acid sequence datasets conceptually translated from the 12 protein-coding genes. The results indicated that the family Notocotylidae is related to the family Paramphistomatidae. Our description of O. sikae mt genome provides a significant resource of molecular markers for future comparative studies of the Notocotylidae and other trematodes.
