Two new stick insect species of Sosibia Stål (Phasmatodea: Lonchodidae: Necrosciinae) from China and the first report on mitochondrial genomes of this genus.
The two mitochondrial genomes of these new Sosibia species were sequenced and annotated for the first time and the compositional biases, codon usage, nucleotide composition, and construct tRNA secondary structures of the two mitogenomes were analyzed.
