BackgroundLepidoptera encompasses more than 160,000 described species that have been classified into 45–48 superfamilies. The previously determined Lepidoptera mitochondrial genomes (mitogenomes) are limited to six superfamilies of the lineage Ditrysia. Compared with the ancestral insect gene order, these mitogenomes all contain a tRNA rearrangement. To gain new insights into Lepidoptera mitogenome evolution, we sequenced the mitogenomes of two ghost moths that belong to the non-ditrysian… Expand
Characterization of the complete mitochondrial genome of tea tussock moth, Euproctis pseudoconspersa (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae) and its phylogenetic implications.
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships were reconstructed by using maximum likelihood (ML) and Bayesian inference (BI) methods based on nucleotide sequences of 13 PCGs of 38 moths and showed that Lymantriidae is more closely related to Erebidae than to Noctuidae. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genomes of Aporia crataegi, Gonepteryx rhamni, and Appias remedios (Lepidoptera, Pieridae) and phylogenetic relationship of other Pieridae species.
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses using mitogenome data showed that the relationship among three subfamilies of Pieridae is (Dismorphiinae+ (Coliadinae  + Pierinae)). Expand
Complete mitochondrial genome of two Thitarodes species (Lepidoptera, Hepialidae), the host moths of Ophiocordyceps sinensis and phylogenetic implications.
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genomes of two species, T. damxungensis and T. pui, have been sequenced and it is suggested that the species T. yunnanensis should still belong to the genus Thitarodes rather than Ahamns, which is different from the results based on the traditional phylogeny. Expand

TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of a major pest of tea trees, Eterusia aedea was determined and the sister relationships of Cossoidea and Zygaenoidea were revealed with both BI and ML methods, which is the first stable mitogenomic evidence for this clade. Expand

TLDR
A mitogenome-based phylogeny of Pyraloidea species, in which L. sticticalis shares close ancestry to Ostrinia species with substantial evidence is provided, and the basal split between Pyraustinae and Spilomelinae is supported. Expand
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. Expand
Complete mitochondrial genome of the lappet moth, Kunugia undans (Lepidoptera: Lasiocampidae): genomic comparisons among macroheteroceran superfamilies
TLDR
The general mitogenome characteristics of Lasiocampoidea did not differ greatly from the remaining macroheteroceran superfamilies, but it did exhibit some unique features. Expand
Mitochondrial genome characterization of Tecia solanivora (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) and its phylogenetic relationship with other lepidopteran insects.
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationship of T. solanivora with 28 other lepidopteran families (12 superfamilies) showed that taxonomic classification by morphological features coincides with the inferred phylogeny, and the Gelechiidae family represents a monophyletic group, suggesting that T.solanivoras and Pectinophora gossypiella have a recent common ancestor. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of Mahanta tanyae compared with other zygaenoid moths (Lepidoptera: Zygaenoidea)
TLDR
Comparative analyses showed that the incomplete termination codon T is consistently recognized in the mitochondrial cox1, cox2 and nad4 genes of all zygaenoid species, as well as in the nad5 gene in two limacodid species, and among 13 protein-coding genes, nad6 exhibits the highest evolutionary rate. Expand
The first complete mitogenome for the superfamily Cossoidea of Lepidoptera: The seabuckthorn carpenter moth Eogystia hippophaecolus
TLDR
The first complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) for the superfamily Cossoidea of Lepidoptera from the seabuckthorn carpenter moth Eogystia hippophaecolus is determined and the tRNA gene trnM was rearranged to the upstream of trnI–trnQ-trnM cluster compared with the pupative ancestral arrangement of insects.

The complete mitochondrial genome of the tobacco hornworm, Manduca sexta, (Insecta: Lepidoptera: Sphingidae), and an examination of mitochondrial gene variability within butterflies and moths.
TLDR
Comparisons of gene variability across the order suggest that the mitochondrial genes most frequently used in phylogenetic analysis of the Lepidoptera, cox1 and cox2, are amongst the least variable genes in the genome and phylogenetic resolution could be improved by using alternative, higher variability genes such as nad2, nad3, n ad4 and nad5.
