Abstract

In this study, the complete mitochondrial genome of hide beetle Dermestes maculatus which was collected from Seoul, South Korea was sequenced by next-generation sequencing. The size of mitochondrial genome is 17,026 bp that composed of 13 protein coding, two ribosomal RNA and 22 tRNA genes which has the identical gene orientation with the other Bostrichiformia species. Additionally, the phylogenetic tree of the D. maculatus in the infraorder Bostrichiformia was reconstructed by using 13 protein-coding genes of complete mitochondrial genome. The results showed that the family Dermestidae is positioned in the infraorder Bostrichiformia early branched than family Bostrichidae. This study provides the first complete mitochondrial genome from the genus Dermestes.
