Complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Cheirotonus jansoni (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae)

L. L. Shao, Huang, D. Y., Sun, X. Y., Hao, J. S., Cheng, C. H., Zhang, W., and Yang, Q., Complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Cheirotonus jansoni (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae), vol. 13, pp. 1047-1058, 2014.

We sequenced the complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of Cheirotonus jansoni (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae), an endangered insect species from Southeast Asia. This long legged scarab is widely collected and reared for sale, although it is rare and protected in the wild. The circular genome is 17,249 bp long and contains a typical gene complement: 13 protein-coding genes, 2 rRNA genes, 22 putative tRNA genes, and a non-coding AT-rich region. Its gene order and arrangement are identical to the common type found in most insect mitogenomes.
