Simple Summary This is the first attempt to test the validity of morphological characters to diagnose the tribes used in the conventional taxonomy of the pyrginae skippers. Current studies on the group deal only with molecular phylogeny and its resulting classification without considering morphology. The diagnostic characters currently used in distinguishing the two tribes cannot be adopted. When a new taxonomic framework is proposed based on molecular data, reevaluation of morphological… 
Macrostructural Evolution of the Mitogenome of Butterflies (Lepidoptera, Papilionoidea)
It is demonstrated that the evolution of the 2S1GO in Lycaenidae followed a complicated pathway with multiple events of duplication and loss of trnS1 and changes in anticodon, and a possible origin of the intergenic spacer trnQ-nad2, characterising MIQGO, from trnM.
Phylogenetic Implication of Large Intergenic Spacers: Insights from a Mitogenomic Comparison of Prosopocoilus Stag Beetles (Coleoptera: Lucanidae)
Analysis of the characteristics of the large IGS (presence or absence, size, and location) in mitogenomes of the genus Prosopocoilus may be informative for the phylogenetic and taxonomic analyses and for evaluation of the species, despite the dense sampling materials needed.


Mitochondrial genome of Abraxas suspecta (Lepidoptera: Geometridae) and comparative analysis with other Lepidopterans.
A short Phylogenetic analysis based on 13 PCGs using maximum likelihood (ML) and Bayesian inference revealed that A. suspecta resides in the Geometridae family, and the method and approach to use moths as model organisms for further genetic and evolutionary biology studies.
Three new Diplozoidae mitogenomes expose unusual compositional biases within the Monogenea class: implications for phylogenetic studies
This study sequenced and characterized mitogenomes belonging to three Diplozoidae family species, and conducted comparative genomic and phylogenomic analyses for the entire Monogenea class, showing that nad2, atp6 and nad6 (fast-evolving) would be better candidates than cox1 (slow-evolved) for species identification and population genetics studies in Diplozooidae.
The complete mitochondrial genomes of two skipper genera (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae) and their associated phylogenetic analysis
Bayesian inference and maximum likelihood methods were employed to infer the phylogenetic relationships, which suggested that A. fuliginosus and B. bicolor belong in the subfamily Hesperiinae.
The complete mitochondrial genome of the Pazala timur (Lepidoptera: Papilionidae: Papilioninae)
Abstract The complete mitochondrial genome of Pazala timur (Lepidoptera: Papilionodae) is a circular molecule of 15,226 bp in length, containing 37 typical animal mitochondrial genes: 13 protein
Unique Duplication of trnN in Odontoptilum angulatum (Lepidoptera: Pyrginae) and Phylogeny within Hesperiidae
This study sequenced the complete mitogenome of Odontoptilum angulatum and found that the dataset comprising all 37 genes produced the highest node support, as well as a monophyly of Pyrginae, indicating that the inclusion of RNAs improves the phylogenetic signal.
Hemipteran Mitochondrial Genomes: Features, Structures and Implications for Phylogeny
The history of Hemipteran mitogenomes research is examined, the main features of them including genome organization, nucleotide composition, protein-coding genes, tRNAs and rRNAs, and non-coded regions are summarized, and special attention is given to the comparative analysis of repeat regions.
The complete mitochondrial genome of the Daimio tethys (Lepidoptera: Hesperoidea: Hesperiidae)
The complete mitochondrial genome of Daimio tethys (Hesperoidea: Hesperiidae) is a circular molecule of 15,341 bp in length, containing 37 typical animal mitochondrial genes and a non-coding AT-rich region that contains some conserved structures characteristic of the lepidopteran mitogenomes.
The complete mitochondrial genome of Parara guttata (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae)
Abstract The mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of Parara guttata (Hesperiidae: Hesperiinae) is a circular molecule of 15,441 bp in length, containing 37 typical animal mitochondrial genes: 13
