Complete mitogenome sequence of Anopheles coustani from São Tomé island.


We report the first complete mitogenome (Mt) sequence of Anopheles coustani, an understudied malaria vector in Africa. The sequence was extracted from one individual mosquito from São Tomé island. The length of the A. coustani Mt genome was 15,408 bp with 79.3% AT content. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that A. coustani is most closely related to A. sinensis (93.5% of identity); and 90.1% identical to A. gambiae complex members.
