Abstract

The complete mitochondrial genome of the perlid stonefly Dinocras cephalotes (Curtis, 1827) was sequenced using a combined 454 and Sanger sequencing approach using the known sequence of Pteronarcys princeps Banks, 1907 (Pteronarcyidae), to identify homologous 454 reads. The genome is 15,666bp in length and includes 13 protein-coding genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes, 22 transfer RNA genes and a control region. Gene order resembles that of basal arthropods. The base composition of the genome is A (33.5%), T (29.0%), C (24.4%) and G (13.1%). This is the second published mitogenome for the order Plecoptera and will be useful in future phylogenetic analysis.
