Phylogenetic analysis of mitochondrial 16s rRNA and NADH Dehydrogenase (ND) gene sequences of Takifugu (Pisces: Tetraodontiformes: Tetraodontidae) was performed. Mitochondrial 16s rRNA genes and orthologous mitochondrial ND gene subunits sequences were extracted from GenBank and multiple sequence alignment was performed using ClustalX. The phylogenetic tree was constructed by maximum parsimony with PHYLIP (Phylogeny Inference Package). Results showed that ND IV gene was the primitive ancestor in Takifugu genus. Each group of the phylogram showed +90% identity suggesting that the sequences are highly conserved. Takifugu snyderi and Takifugu stictonotus, Takifugu rubripes and Takifugu chinensis, Takifugu obscurus and Takifugu fasciatus, Takifugu niphobles and Takifugu pardalis, Takifugu poecilonotus and Takifugu exascurus were closely associated
Keywords: Phylogeny, PHYLIP, 16s rRNA, NADH Dehydrogenase, Takifugu.
