Camacolaimidae is a clade of nematodes that include both free-living epistrate feeding forms and parasites of marine protozoans and invertebrates. Neocamacolaimus parasiticus is a parasite of marine polychaete worms. Given its phylogenetic affinities to free-living species, Neocamacolaimus can be a reference for research of the origin of parasitism in an aquatic environment. Here, we present a draft transcriptome obtained from a single post-parasitic juvenile individual of this species. The final assembly consists of 19,180 protein coding sequences (including isoforms) with the following BUSCO scores for Nematoda: 65.38% complete, 9.06% partial, and 25.56% missing, and for Metazoa: 79.45% complete, 3.17% partial, and 17.38% missing.
