- Almost complete mitochondrial genome from a representative of an insect order Lepidoptera, the smaller tea tortrix Adoxophyes honmai was determined. The 15,680 bp long A. honmai genome encodes 13 putative proteins, two ribosomal RNAs and 22 tRNAs. The nucleotide sequences of A. honmai mitochondrial DNA have been compared with those of five species from the Lepidoptera and insects in the other orders that are available in the databases. The orientation and gene order of A. honmai is almost same to that of other insects with a few minor exceptions in the order of tRNAs and distribution of non-coding regions. Nucleotide composition, amino acid composition and codon usage are in the range of values estimated from other insect mitogenomes. In AT rich region of A. honmai, tandem reiterations are observed with repeats of TAA. In a preliminary phylogenetic analysis based on the concatenated 7 protein coding genes, A. honmai, an apoditrysian tortricid moth joined basally within the monophyly of Lepidoptera, supporting its relationship with other more derived species including obtectomeran Ostrinia species.
