The honeybee species native to two remote islands (Amami-Oshima and Tsushima) in Japan were previously reported to be morphologically distinct from the Japanese honeybee Apis cerana japonica. To our knowledge, this is the first study to analyze the complete mitochondrial genome of the honeybee species from the two islands. The mitochondrial genome was a circular and approximately 1.5 kbp molecule that included 13 protein-cording genes (PCGs), 22 tRNA genes, 2 rRNA genes, and 1 AT-rich control… CONTINUE READING
