Abstract

The complete mitochondrial genome of a Chinese stag beetle, Prismognathus

prossi, was generated using the Illumina next-generation sequencing. The mitogenome

sequence is 15,984 bp in length, the nucleotide composition isA 36.6%,

C17.5%, T34.3% andG11.6%with theAT-content of 70.9%. The sequence has

similar features with other reported insectmitogenomes, consisting of 13 proteincoding

genes (PCGs), 22 transferRNAgenes, tworibosomalRNAsand a control

region. All of the protein-coding genes start with the typicalATNinitiation codon

except for COI. Maximum Likelihood (ML) and Bayesian Inference (BI) indicated

that P. prossi share an affinity with Lucanus mazama, Lucanus fortunei and

Cyclommatus vitalisi.
