Abstract:

"The bombycid moth, Triuncina daii Xing Wang & Zolotuhin, 2015, plays an important role for analyzing the phylogenetic relationships of the family Bombycidae  (Lepidoptera: Bombycoidea). Here we first describe the complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of T. daii, which includes thirteen protein-coding genes (PCGs), twenty-two transfer RNA genes, two ribosomal RNA genes and an A+T-rich region, and we find the mitogenome is 15,482 bp in length (GenBank no. KY091643). The genes order and orientation in the T. daii mitogenome are similar to other sequenced lepidopteran species. Except for cox1, all of the PCGs started with ATN. Twelve PCGs stopped at TAA except for cox1 which stops at a single T. Thirteen PCGs of available species are used to demonstrate the inner phylogenetic relationships of Bombycoidea. The bombycid species form a monophyletic clade with a bootstrap value of 100% and a posterior probability of 1.00."
