Additional File 1:

Circular representation of the mitochondrial genome of Microcotyle sebastis. All genes (not scaled) are encoded in the same direction and 22 tRNA genes (shadowed areas) are denoted by the one-letter code and two leucine and two serine tRNA genes are labeled, according to their anticodon sequence, as L1 (trnL-uag), L2 (trnL-uaa), S1 (trnS-gcu), and S2 (trnS-uga), respectively. The highly repetitive region (between trnK and UAR) and unassigned region (between HRR and nad6) are denoted as HRR and UAR, respectively.
