In this paper, we sequenced the complete mitochondrial genome of Kallima inachus (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Nymphalinae), which is considered a rare species in China. The genome is 15,183 bp in size. Its gene arrangement pattern was identical with those of Argynnis hyperbius. We compared the mitochondrial genome of K. inachus with that of A. hyperbius. Nucleotide sequence similarity between the two whole mitochondrial genomes was 85.92%, and the relatively low similarity seems to indicate that… 

The complete mitochondrial genome of the Indian leafwing butterfly Kallima paralekta (insecta: Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae)

Phylogenetic reconstruction places K. paraleckta within the monophyletic genus Kallima, sister to Mallika in the subfamily Nymphalinae and contributes to the evolutionary systematics of the Nymphalidae.

Complete Mitogenomes of Euploea mulciber (Nymphalidae: Danainae) and Libythea celtis (Nymphalidae: Libytheinae) and Their Phylogenetic Implications

The complete mitochondrial genome sequences of the two butterfly species Euploea mulciber and Libythea celtis were determined in this study and are identical to those of most of the other lepidopteran species.

Complete mitochondrial genome of the summer heath fritillary butterfly, Mellicta ambigua (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae)

Phylogenetic analyses using concatenated sequences of the 13 PCGs and 2 rRNAs placed M. ambigua as a sister group to the within-tribe species, Melitaea cinxia, with the highest nodal support both in the maximum-likelihood (ML) and Bayesian inference (BI) methods.

The complete mitochondrial genome of Papilio bianor (Lepidoptera: Papilionidae), and its phylogenetic position within Papilionidae

The phylogenetic trees confirmed that P. bianor and four species of Papilionidae clustered into a clade, and shared a close relationship with Papilio maraho, and also confirmed that Papilionaceae is a monophyletic group, and Pieridae is closely related with Lycaenidae and Nymphalidae.

The complete mitochondrial genome of Damora sagana and phylogenetic analyses of the family Nymphalidae

The monotypic genus Damora (Nymphalidae, Heliconiinae) contains a single species, Damora sagana, which is widely distributed across southern China. Herein, its complete mitogenome was sequenced to

The Complete Mitochondrial Genome of Brachmia macroscopa (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) and Its Related

Thirteen PCGs of the available species (33 taxa) were used to demonstrate phylogenetic relationships and the ditrysian cluster was supported as a monophyletic clade at high levels by using maximum likelihood and Bayesian methods.

The Complete Mitochondrial Genome of Brachmia macroscopa (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) and Its Related Phylogenetic Analysis

The sweet potato leaf folder, Brachmia macroscopa, is an important pest in China and the complete mitogenome, which consists of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA genes, and an A + T-rich region, was sequenced and found to be 15,394 bp in length.

The complete mitochondrial genome of Vanessa indica and phylogenetic analyses of the family Nymphalidae

The most important objective was to completely reconstruct the phylogenetic relationships for family members within Nymphalidae, and the results are significant because they would be useful in further understanding of the evolutionary biology of Nymphaticae.

Evolution of coloration patterns.

It is now possible to ask questions about how many genes are responsible for any given pattern, what types of genetic changes have occurred to generate the diversity, and if the same underlying genetic changes occur repeatedly when coloration phenotypes arise through convergent evolution or parallel evolution.
