Abstract The complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of the turnip moth Agrotis segetum (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) was determined (GenBank accession No. KC894725). This is the first sequenced mitogenome from the subfamily Noctuinae of Noctuidae. The length of this mitogenome is 15,378 bp with a A+T content of 80.7%. There are 37 typical animal mitochondrial genes and a A+T-rich region. The tRNA gene trnM was the only rearranged gene compared with the pupative ancestral arrangement of insects. All protein-coding genes start with ATN start codon except for the gene cox1, which uses CGA as in other lepidopteran species. Ten protein-coding genes stop with termination codon TAA, whereas three protein-coding gene use incomplete stop codon T. The A+T-region is located between rrnS and trnM with a length of 332 bp and A+T content of 93.5%.
