Abstract The complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of Hasora vitta was sequenced and analyzed in the study. The mitogenome is 15 282 bp in size, including 37 genes and a putative control region. Thirteen protein-coding genes all start with a typical ATN codon, expect that COI gene uses CGA as its initial codon. Majority of the 13 PCGs have a complete termination codon (TAA or TAG) except for COII and ND4 have a single T residue. All tRNAs have typical clover-leaf secondary structure… 
Complete mitochondrial genomes of three skippers in the tribe Aeromachini (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae: Hesperiinae) and their phylogenetic implications
Results show that the tribe Aeromachini robustly constitute a monophyletic group in the subfamily Hesperiinae, with the relationships Coeliadinae + (Euschemoninae | Eudaminae + Tagiadinaes) + (Heteropterinae - ((Trapezitinae • Barcinae) + HesperIinae))))).
Comparative Mitogenomic Analysis of Five Awl Skippers (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae: Coeliadinae) and Their Phylogenetic Implications
Phylogenetic analyses based on three datasets and using maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference methods show strong support for the monophyly of Coeliadinae, and the relationships of the five species are shown to be monophyletic.
Mitogenomes of Nine Asian Skipper Genera and Their Phylogenetic Position (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae: Pyrginae)
This first attempt to test the validity of morphological characters to diagnose the tribes used in the conventional taxonomy of the pyrginae skippers found that the one comprising all 37 genes of the mitogenome produced the highest nodal support, indicating that the inclusion of RNAs improves the phylogenetic signal.
The complete mitochondrial genome of a skipper Burara striata (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae)
A complete mitogenome of an Asian skipper butterfly Burara striata (Hesperiidae, Coeliadinae), the first representative of the genus Burara, is assembled from next generation sequencing reads.
The mitogenome of a Malagasy butterfly Malaza fastuosus (Mabille, 1884) recovered from the holotype collected over 140 years ago adds support for a new subfamily of Hesperiidae (Lepidoptera).
Malaza appears to be an evolutionarily highly distinct ancient lineage, morphologically with several unusual hesperiid features, and the monotypic subfamily Malazinae Lees & Grishin subfam.
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.
Mitogenomes of Giant-Skipper Butterflies reveal an ancient split between deep and shallow root feeders
Phylogenetic analysis confirms that Giant-Skippers (Megathymini) originate within the subfamily Hesperiinae and do not warrant a subfamily rank and the phylogeny agrees with morphological considerations.


The results indicates that the complete mitochondrial genome of T. maculata is a circular molecule of 15 178 nucleotides, including 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes,2 rRNA genes and 382 bp A + T-rich region.
The complete mitochondrial genome of the butterfly Apatura metis (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae)
The phylogenetic analyses of lepidopterans based on mitogenomes sequences demonstrate that each of the six superfamilies is monophyletic, and the relationship among them is (((Noctuoidea + (Geometroidea-+ Bombycoidea)-+-Pyraloidea) +-Papilionoidesa)-+-TortricoideA).
The complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial genome of Phthonandria atrilineata (Lepidoptera: Geometridae)
The phylogenetic relationships were reconstructed with the concatenated sequences of the 13 PCGs of the mitochondrial genome, which confirmed that P. atrilineata is most closely related to the superfamily Bombycoidea.
Complete mitogenome of the Lesser Purple Emperor Apatura ilia (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Apaturinae) and comparison with other nymphalid butterflies.
The comparison of the nucleotide sequences of the A. ilia mitogenome with ten other Nymphalidae species showed nearly identical gene orientation and arrangement, with only a few alterations in non-coding fragments.
Complete nucleotide sequence and organization of the mitogenome of endangered Eumenis autonoe (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae)
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 results indicated that the complete mitochondrial genome of S. charonda coreana is a circular molecule of 15 233 nucleotides, including 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 rRNA genes and 381 bp non-Coding region, which is consistent with other sequenced Lepidoptera speices.
The Complete Mitochondrial Genome and Novel Gene Arrangement of the Unique-Headed Bug Stenopirates sp. (Hemiptera: Enicocephalidae)
Many of true bugs are important insect pests to cultivated crops and some are important vectors of human diseases, but few cladistic analyses have addressed relationships among the seven infraorders
Insect mitochondrial genomics: implications for evolution and phylogeny.
Insects are model systems for studying aberrant mt genomes, including truncated tRNAs and multichromosomal genomes, and greater integration of nuclear and mt genomic studies is necessary to further the understanding of insect genomic evolution.
Gene translocation links insects and crustaceans
A derived gene rearrangement common to insects and crustaceans but absent in the other arthropod groups is reported, suggesting an insect-crustacean evolutionary lineage that is separate from those leading to myriapods and chelicerates.
