Abstract: The complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of Hasora vitta was sequenced and analyzed in the study. The mitogenome is 15282bp in size, including 37 genes and a putative control region. Thirteen protein-coding genes all start with a typical ATN codon, expect that COI gene uses CGA as its initial codon. Majority of the 13 PCGs have a complete termination codon (TAA or TAG) except for COII and ND4 have a single T residue. All tRNAs have typical clover-leaf secondary structure, except for tRNASer(AGN), in which the dihydrouridine (DHU) arm is a simple loop. In the sampled species of Hesperiidae, Hasora vitta, Choaspes benjaminii, Ampittia dioscorides, the remaining sampled species, Celaenorrhinus maculosus (Daimio tethys, Ctenoptilum vasava), Potanthus flavus (Polytremis nascens, Ochlodes venata), are recovered in phylogenetic analyses with high supports.
