Abstract
    Diplosoma listerianum (Milne Edwards, 1841) is a globally distributed species that encompasses the existence of multiple cryptic species. In this study, partial sequences of cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) from D. listerianum in South Korea were determined and compared with COI sequences of known D. listerianum and other Diplosoma species retrieved from GenBank. The results showed that Korean D. listerianum matched with clade A of D. listerianum, which is a group distributed globally. These new DNA barcodes for Korean D. listerianum may be useful in the identification of colonial ascidians, which is difficult to morphological identify.
