X. Gao, Zhu, J. Y., Ma, S., Zhang, Z., Xiao, C., Li, Q., Li, Z. Y., and Wu, G. X., Transcriptome profiling of the crofton weed gall fly Procecidochares utilis, vol. 13, pp. 2857-2864, 2014.

Procecidochares utilis is a tephritid gall fly, which is known to be an effective biological agent that can be used to control the notoriously widespread crofton weed Eupatorium adenophorum. Despite its importance, genetic resources for P. utilis remain scarce. In this study, 1.2 Gb sequences were generated using Illumina paired-end sequencing technology. De novo assemblies yielded 491,760 contigs, 90,474 scaffolds, and 58,562 unigenes.
