Abstract

Hexapods, i.e six-legged arthropods are the largest group of arthropods consisting of species of the class Insecta, also called “true insects”, and the less known ancestrally wingless hexapods comprising the systematic orders Protura (coneheads), Collembola (springtails) and Diplura (two- pronged bristletails), also traditionally grouped as “Entognatha”. Analysis with BUSCO software for assessing the assembly completeness suggests a good level of gene content recovery with 97.6% of the 1066 single-copy genes expected to be conserved in arthropods. Our phylogenomic analysis suggests that the traditional Entognatha group is paraphyletic with Diplura as sister group to Insecta (i.e. true insects), and Collembola and Protura are more closely related to each other. Taking advantage of the new C. augens assembly I identified and curated the gene models of: a) the Hox cluster; b) the RNAi pathway; and c) the wing regulatory pathway. I also assembled and annotated a circularized mitogenome for C. augens
