Complete mitochondrial genome of the pine moth Dendrolimus spectabilis (Lepidoptera: Lasiocampidae).

ABSTRACT: We have sequenced the complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of the pine moth Dendrolimus spectabilis Butler (Lepidoptera: Lasiocampidae), which has been a serious pest for the Japanese red pine (Pinus densiflora S. et Z.) in Korea. The 15?409?bp complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of the species consists of a typical set of genes (13 protein-coding genes, 2 rRNA genes and 22 tRNA genes) and the A?+?T-rich region, with an arrangement typical of Ditrysia in Lepidoptera. The 320?bp long A?+?T-rich region of D. spectabilis contains the motif ATAGA near the 5'-end of the srRNA, with a 14?bp-long poly-T stretch - the ATTTA sequence - and a microsatellite-like sequence consisting of (TA)7, but lacks the poly-A stretch often found immediately upstream of tRNAMet in other Lepidoptera. A phylogenetic analysis using 13 protein-coding genes from Bombycoidea and Lasiocampoidea has shown that D. spectabilis was placed as a sister to the congeneric species group, D. tabulaeformis?+?D. punctatus.
