Abstract

Mitochondrial genome sequences of Diorhabda carinata and Diorhabda carinulata, two beetle species introduced to North America for biological control.

Abstract

We announce the complete circularized mitochondrial genome assemblies of Diorhabda carinata and Diorhabda carinulata, beetle species introduced to North America for the biological control of invasive shrubs of the genus Tamarix L. (Tamaricaceae). The assemblies (16,232 and 16,298 bp, respectively) each comprise 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNAs, two rRNAs, and a noncoding region.
