Karazin Kharkiv National University, Kharkiv, Ukraine ARTICLE I NFO ABSTRACT Keywords: Phylogenetic relationships between species of the genus Hirudo plus genetic variation in the entire distribution Genetic variability range of Hirudo orientalis were investigated based on mitochondrial (COI and 12S rDNA) and nuclear Population (ITS1+5.8S+ITS2) genome regions. The sister relationship of Hirudo orientalis and H. medicinalis was revealed Hirudo orientalis with a high posterior probability. A broad and patchy distribution with minor genetic diﬀerences was observed Medicinal leech in populations of H. orientalis along the central and Middle Eastern parts of Asia.
