Abstract: In the present study, the first mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I gene (COI) sequence of Sterkiella multicirrata Li et al., 2018 is presented. To begin with, this species has been also morphologically recorded from South Korea, and this study was performed using genomic DNA of the Korean population. The newly obtained COI sequences of S. multicirrata were identical. And the inter-specific variation between S. multicirrata and S. histriomuscorum was noted at 14.3%. These values correspond well with the results of previous studies. However, because there are very few available COI sequences of stichotrichian in GenBank, it is concluded that continuous accumulation of data is needed for further study.
