The complete mitochondrial genome of the oriental fruit fly Bactrocera dorsalis s.s. has been sequenced, and is here described and compared with the homologous sequences of Bactrocera oleae and Ceratitis capitata. The genome is a circular molecule of 15,915 bp, and encodes the set of 37 genes generally found in animal mitochondrial genomes. The structure and organization of the molecule is typical and similar to the two closely related species B. oleae and C. capitata, although it presents an interesting case of putative intra-molecular recombination. The relevance of the growing comparative dataset of tephritid complete mitochondrial genomes is discussed in relation to the possibility to develop robust assays for species discrimination in quarantine and agricultural monitoring practices, as well as basic phylogeography/population genetic studies. © 2007 Elsevier B.V.
