TLDR
This study presents the first mitogenome for Rhodinia genus, a genus of wild silkmoths in the family Saturniidae of Lepidoptera, and reveals phylogenetic relationships, including that R. fugax belongs to Attacini, instead of Saturniini.
First complete mitochondrial genome of Rhodinia species (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae): genome description and phylogenetic implication
TLDR
Mitogenome-based phylogenetic analysis shows that R. fugax belongs to Attacini, instead of Saturniini, and this study presents the first mitogenome for Rhodinia genus.
Squeaking caterpillars: independent evolution of sonic defense in wild silkmoths.
TLDR
Revealing how wild silkmoth larvae whistle would contribute to understanding the evolutionary origin of sound production in Lepidoptera.
