    Abstract

    In this study, the complete mitochondrial genome sequenced and analyzed from a fly, Muscina angustifrons which collected from South Korea. The size of mitochondrial genome is 16,316 bp with 40.9% A, 12.3% C, 8.4% G and 38.4% T distribution. Furthermore, phylogenetic relationships of the superfamily Muscoidea evaluated due to mitochondrial protein coding genes. The results showed that the family Muscidae is a paraphyletic group and the closest species to M. angustifrons is M. levida. This is the third complete mitochondrial genome for the genus Muscina and the first genus record from South Korea.
