Abstract

In this study, we first determined the mitochondrial genome sequence of Aedes koreicus collected in South Korea. Its mitochondrial genome is 15,840 bp in length and consists of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer-RNA genes, 2 ribosomal-RNA genes, and a non-coding A + T rich region. The overall base composition in the heavy strand was as follows: A, 40.1%; G, 8.7%; C, 13.6%; T, 37.5%; and the G + C content was 22.4%. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that Aedes spp. form a monophyletic group.
