Liriomyza huidobrensis, L. trifolii and L. sativae (Diptera: Agromyzidae) are serious horticultural pests. The three species are very similar and difficult to discriminate from each other. In this study, we report the mitochondrial genome of L. huidobrensis and compare with L. trifolii and L. sativae. The mitochondrial genome of L. huidobrensis is 16,239 bp long, and it contains 37 genes and one A + T-rich region as do the sequenced liriomyza species. The sequence and structure of H51-H100 region in srRNA is significantly different from that of L. trifolii and L. sativae. The greatest sequence differences among the three leafminers are located in the region including ND2, ND3, ND6, ATP6, ATP8, CYTb and A+T region, which can be considered as candidate regions for molecular identification or SNP markers. © 2014 Informa UK Ltd.

Liriomyza trifolii (Diptera: Agromyzidae) is one of the most economically significant pests in the world. In this paper we present sequence data for the complete mitochondrial genome of L. trifolii. The circular genome is 16,141 bp long and contains one encoding region including 37 genes and one non-coding A+T-rich region. Gene numbers and organization is similar to that of the typical insect mitochondrial genomes except that two additional tRNA genes are found in the A+T-rich region (tRNAThr and tRNALeu(UUR)). All of the protein initiation codons are ATN, except ND1 which begins with GTG and COI which is initiated by the quadruplet ATCA. The 22 tRNA anticodons of L. trifolii match those observed in Drosophila yakuba, and all of tRNAs form the typical cloverleaf structure except for tRNASer(AGN), which has lost the DHU-arm. The A+T-rich region of L. trifolii also contains two previously noted Diperan features-a highly conserved polyT stretch and a (TA)n stretch. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
