Macdonald, Anna J; Knopp, Theresa; Pepper, Mitzy; Keogh, J Scott; Sarre, Stephen


The Pygopodidae comprise an enigmatic group of legless lizards endemic to the Australo-Papuan region. Here we present the first complete mitochondrial genome for a member of this family, Aprasia parapulchella, from Australia. The mitochondrial genome of A. parapulchella is 16528 base pairs long and contains 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, two rRNA genes and the control region, conforming to the typical vertebrate gene order. The overall mitochondrial nucleotide composition is 31.7% A,...[Show more]
