          Abstract

          In this study, we sequence the complete mitochondrial genome of Muscina stabulans (Diptera: Muscidae), a forensically important entomology, for the first time. The 15,933 bp circular genome contains the 37 genes found in a typical metazoan genome: 13 protein-coding genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes, 22 transfer RNA genes and 1 non-coding A + T-rich region. All the protein initiation codons are ATN, except for cox1 and ND1 that begin with TCG and TTG. The arrangement of the genes was the same as that found in the other insect. The overall base composition on heavy strand was as follows A: 40.00%, G: 8.80%, C: 13.34%, T: 37.86% and the A + T content 77.86%. The mitochondrial genome of Muscina stabulans presented will be valuable for resolving phylogenetic relationships within the family Muscidae and order Diptera, and could be used to identify favourable genetic markers for species identifications for forensic purposes.
