Linear comparison of partial mt genome structure in M. australiensis and X. vesparum. Elements in red denote deviations from the ancestral holometabolan arrangement [29,30]. Readers are referred to the primary research for a complete catalogue of genome rearrangements in Holometabola: Hymenoptera ; Coleoptera [88-93]; Neuropterida [34,94,95], a shift from WCY to CWY is probably synapomorphic for Neuroptera but not for other neuropterid orders; Lepidoptera [33,75-81] are characterized by a synapomorphic tRNA rearrangement MIQ, from IQM, 5' of nad2 (not shown); Diptera [60-74].
