In this study 12 specimens were collected from Bandar Jask, Qeshm Island and Bandare Lengeh in Hormozgan Province. DNA extraction was performed using Phenol-Chloroform method. A partial DNA sequence of Cytochrome oxidase subunit I gene (COI) was used to evaluate genetic diversity. The sequence of Cytochrome oxidase subunit I gene was done using specific primers designed based on sequences registered in NCBI GenBank. The diversity of 619 bp of COI was estimated. Gene sequencing of samples were compared with using MEGA5 and Bioedit7 software. Also, polymorphism or haplotype frequency was evaluated using dnaSp7 software. Results showed that there was low genetic distance equals to among all population and 9 haplotypes among samples were determined.
