Simple Summary With 387 species, Dactylispa is a large genus of family Chrysomelidae, subfamily Cassidinae, and the most species-rich genus of leaf-mining hispine beetles. Among leaf-mining hispines, Dactylispa also feeds on the largest number of host plants, including 29 families and 80 genera, with the main hosts belonging to Poaceae, Rosaceae, and Fagaceae. Some species of Dactylispa are economic crop pests. However, the subgenus classification of Dactylispa species, which is currently based…

Phylogenetic Implication of Large Intergenic Spacers: Insights from a Mitogenomic Comparison of Prosopocoilus Stag Beetles (Coleoptera: Lucanidae)
TLDR
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.

BIOLOGY AND PHYLOGENY OF THE CASSIDINAE GYLLENHAL SENSU LATO (TORTOISE AND LEAF-MINING BEETLES) (COLEOPTERA: CHRYSOMELIDAE)
TLDR
The biological account and phylogenetic results provide an opportunity for identifying some general trends and major innovations in the evolutionary history of Cassidinae.
Complete mitogenome sequence of the jewel beetle, Chrysochroa fulgidissima (Coleoptera: Buprestidae)
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of the jewel beetle, Chrysochroa fulgidissima, is determined from four overlapping fragments by Bayesian inference, maximum-likelihood analysis, and maximum-parsimony analysis, revealing a lack of strong support for monophyletic Elateriformia.
A Comparative Analysis of Mitochondrial Genomes in Coleoptera (Arthropoda: Insecta) and Genome Descriptions of Six New Beetles
TLDR
Six new complete mitochondrial genome descriptions are presented, including a representative of each suborder, and the evolution of mtgenomes from a comparative framework using all available coleopteran mt Genomes is analyzed.
Complete Mitogenome of a Leaf-Mining Buprestid Beetle, Trachys auricollis, and Its Phylogenetic Implications
TLDR
Both maximum likelihood (ML) and Bayesian (BI) trees suggest that Buprestoidea is close to Byrrhoidea and that B uprestoIDEa and Byrr Hoidea are sister groups of Elateroidesa, but the position of Psephenidae is undetermined.
Bionomics of Dactylispa dohertyi (Gestro, 1897), a new pest of apple plantations (Malus domestica Borkh.) in Jammu Region of J & K, India
TLDR
An attempt was made to study the biology of this pest in Jammu as no earlier record of the pest has been obtained from the region so far, and the present study is an important step in future to record the no.
The characteristics and expression profiles of the mitochondrial genome for the Mediterranean species of the Bemisia tabaci complex
TLDR
The complete mitogenome of the invasive Mediterranean (MED) is obtained and mRNA levels showed significant differences among genes located in the same transcription unit suggesting that mitochondrial mRNA abundance is heavily modulated by post-transcriptional regulation.
The complete mitochondrial genome of Downesia tarsata (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae)
TLDR
Downesia tarsata is closely related to Agonita chinensis, and the two species belong to the same tribe of Gonophorini, and could help clarify the phylogenetic relationship among Cassidinae species.
