Abstract

Here we present the first complete mitochondrial genome of the lesser sac-winged bat Saccopteryx leptura (Chiroptera: Emballonuridae) from Costa Rica, assembled from next-generation sequencing data. The mitogenome of Saccopteryx leptura measures 16,577 bp in length, and contains 13 protein-coding genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes and 22 transfer RNA genes. A slight A+T bias was observed in the mitogenome of Saccopteryx leptura with an overall base composition of 31.5% A, 28.3% T, 25.8% C, and 14.2% G, and a GC content of 40.1%. The gene arrangement was identical to that of previously described bat mitogenomes.
