We report the assembly and annotation of the complete mitochondrial genome of the warningly-coloured wood tiger moth (Arctia plantaginis) and investigate its phylogenetic position within Arctiinae. The A.plantaginis mitogenome is 15,479 bp long with 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNAs, 2 ribosomal RNA genes, and an A + T-rich region (D-loop). The phylogenetic analyses based on 13 protein-coding genes showed A.plantaginis clustering within a clade of species with white wings and yellow or red bodies. This result can be useful in understanding the evolution of coloration in Arctiid moths.

Evolution of signal diversity : predator-prey interactions and the maintenance of warning colour polymorphism in the wood tiger moth Arctia plantaginis Rönkä, Katja (University of Jyväskylä, 2017)Aposematic organisms avoid predation by advertising defences with warning signals. The theory of aposematism predicts warning signal uniformity, yet variation in warning coloration is widespread. The chemically defended ...

Specifically, polymorphism in aposematic species cannot ...

A haplotype-resolved, de novo genome assembly for the wood tiger moth (Arctia plantaginis) through trio binning Yen, Eugenie C.; McCarthy, Shane A.; Galarza, Juan A.; Generalovic, Tomas N.; Pelan, Sarah; Nguyen, Petr; Meier, Joana I.; Warren, Ian A.; Mappes, Johanna; Durbin, Richard; Jiggins, Chris D. (Biomed Central, 2020)Background Diploid genome assembly is typically impeded by heterozygosity because it introduces errors when haplotypes are collapsed into a consensus sequence. Trio binning offers an innovative solution that exploits ...
Defense against predators incurs high reproductive costs for the aposematic moth Arctia plantaginis Lindstedt, Carita; Suisto, Kaisa; Burdfield-Steel, Emily; Winters, Anne E.; Mappes, Johanna (Oxford University Press, 2020)To understand how variation in warning displays evolves and is maintained, we need to understand not only how perceivers of these traits select color and toxicity but also the sources of the genetic and phenotypic variation ...
