The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the nerippe fritillary butterfly, Argynnis nerippe, which is listed as an endangered species in Korea, is described with an emphasis on the A+T-rich region. The 15,140-bp long circular molecule consisted of 13 protein-coding genes, two rRNA genes, 22 tRNA genes and 1 control region, known in insect as the A+T-rich region, as found in typical metazoans. The 329-bp long A+T-rich region located between srRNA and tRNAMet possessed the highest A/T… 
Mitochondrial genome of the pine tip moth Rhyacionia leptotubula (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)
TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial genome of the pine tip moth Rhyacionia leptotubula (Lepidoptera, Tortricidae) was determined and provides important molecular information to phylogenetic and population genetic researches.

TLDR
Junonia orithya’s complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) is determined to be 14,214 bp in length, including 37 typical mitochondrial genes and an AT-rich region, which contains several features common to the other lepidopterans.
The complete mitochondrial genome of fall armyworm Spodoptera frugiperda (Lepidoptera:Noctuidae)
TLDR
The complete mitogenome of Spodoptera frugiperda (Lepidoptera:Noctuidae) was determined to be 15,365 bp in length and has the typical gene order found in Noctuidae mitogenomes, it includes 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), two rRNA genes, 22 tRNA genes and a A+T-rich region.
Complete mitogenome of the Painted Jezebel, Delias hyparete Linnaeus (Lepidoptera: Pieridae) and its comparison with other butterfly species.
TLDR
The first complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of the Painted Jezebel, Delias hyparete is reported and harbors several features characteristic of the lepidopteran insects, including the motif ATAGA followed by an 18 bp poly-T stretch, a microsatellite-like (AT)(5) element preceded by the ATTTA motif.
Characterization of the complete mitochondrial genome of Spilarctia robusta (Lepidoptera: Noctuoidea: Erebidae) and its phylogenetic implications
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis, based on 13 PCGs using Maximum likelihood methods revealed that S. robusta belongs to the superfamily Noctuoidea, similar to other lepidopteran mitogenomes.

The complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial genome of the cabbage butterfly, Artogeia melete (Lepidoptera: Pieridae).
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of Artogeia melete was determined as being composed of 15,140 bp, including 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), 2 r RNA genes, 22 tRNA genes, and one control region, which is typical of Lepidoptera and differs from the insect ancestral type in the location of trnM.
Complete nucleotide sequence and organization of the mitogenome of endangered Eumenis autonoe (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae)
TLDR
Phylogenetic reconstruction using the concatenated 13 amino acid and nucleotide sequences of the protein-coding genes (PCGs) consistently supported a close relationship between Bombycoidea and Geometroidea among six available lepidopteran superfamilies and excluding Nymphalidae was consistently concluded to exist.
The complete mitochondrial genome of the bag-shelter moth Ochrogaster lunifer (Lepidoptera, Notodontidae)
TLDR
The mitochondrial genome of O. lunifer is the first representative of superfamily Noctuoidea that account for about 40% of all described Lepidoptera and shares many features with other known lepidopteran genomes, differs however for its low A+T content and marked C-skew.
Complete nucleotide sequence and organization of the mitogenome of the red-spotted apollo butterfly, Parnassius bremeri (Lepidoptera: Papilionidae) and comparison with other lepidopteran insects
TLDR
It is proposed that the CGA (arginine) sequence functions as the start codon for the COI gene in lepidopteran insects, on the basis of complete mitogenome sequences of lepid insect species, including P. bremeri.
Replication Origin of Mitochondrial DNA in Insects
TLDR
The results strongly indicate that the T-stretch is involved in the recognition of the OR of mtDNA at least among holometabolous insects.

TLDR
The comparison of animal mitochondrial gene arrangements has become a very powerful means for inferring ancient evolutionary relationships, since rearrangements appear to be unique, generally rare events that are unlikely to arise independently in separate evolutionary lineages.
