The complete mitochondrial genome of Euphlyctis karaavali (Amphibia: Anura) with a note on its range expansion

The complete mitochondrial genome of Euphlyctis karaavali (Amphibia: Anura) with a note on its... The complete mitochondrial genome of skittering frog Euphlyctis karaavali (Karaavali Skittering Frog) was sequenced. The mitogenome is a circular molecule of 15,505 bp in length containing 13 protein-coding genes, two ribosome RNA genes, 21 transfer RNA (tRNA) genes and a non-coding D-loop region (control region). Its gene arrangements are similar to the typical neobatrachian-type except for the loss of tRNAPro gene. Our data which represent the first mitogenome for the species Euphlyctis karaavali is a newly reported species and known only from the type locality (coastal plain of Karnataka, India) at an elevation of 2 m Mean Sea Level. Our data revealed that the geographical distribution range of this species is extended up to the southern part of Kerala State and recorded at an elevation of 68 m from the Mean Sea Level. Our data will serve as a reference for further studies on the conservation genetics of the Euphlyctis genus in India. Conservation Genetics Resources Springer Journals
