In this paper, the complete mitochondrial genome of Acraea issoria (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Heliconiinae: Acraeini) is reported; a circular molecule of 15,245 bp in size. For A. issoria, genes are…
Dated phylogeny and dispersal history of the butterfly subfamily Nymphalinae (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae)
The biogeographic history indicates that temperature changes and host-plant diversification may have facilitated the dispersals of this butterfly subfamily, with accelerated global colonization during the middle to late Miocene.

The comparison of the nucleotide sequences of the A. ilia mitogenome with ten other Nymphalidae species showed nearly identical gene orientation and arrangement, with only a few alterations in non-coding fragments.
Complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Cheirotonus jansoni (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae).
This newly sequenced genome of Cheirotonus jansoni aids in the understanding of the comparative biology of the mitogenomes of coleopteran species and supplies important data for the conservation of this species.
Morphological Characters Are Compatible with Mitogenomic Data in Resolving the Phylogeny of Nymphalid Butterflies (Lepidoptera: Papilionoidea: Nymphalidae)
A phylogenetic analysis of the 33 species from all 13 currently recognized nymphalid subfamilies was done, finding that the mitogenomic phylogeny established herein is compatible with selected morphological characters (including developmental and adult morpho-characters).
The complete mitochondrial genome of Cupido argiades (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae)
The complete mitogenome of Cupido argiades (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae) was determined in this study, presenting a typical gene organization and order for completely sequenced lepidopoteran mitogenomes.

The complete mitochondrial genome of the endangered Apollo butterfly, Parnassius apollo (Lepidoptera: Papilionidae) and its comparison to other Papilionidae species
Complete mitochondrial genome of the Common Evening Brown, Melanitis leda Linnaeus (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Satyrinae)
The 314-bp-long AT-rich region is the smallest of all the butterfly corresponding regions available and contains some conserved structures similar to those found in other butterfly mitogenomes, including the motif ATAGA followed by a 19-bp poly-T stretch and a microsatellite-like (AT)6 element preceded by the ATTTA motif.
