The Aedes aegypti mitogenome (Mt) sequences of field isolates from California and South Africa revealed a deletion between position 14,522 and 14,659 of the Mt contig of the AaegL5 reference genome. The length of the mitogenome of the California isolate was 16,659 bp and had 99.0% similarity with the AaegL5 Mt contig. The South African isolate sequence was 16,600 bp long and had 97.9% similarity with the reference. The region between 1496 and 1664 bp is similar to a nuclear pseudogene that might be a copy of a portion of the mitochondrial genome.
