Abstract:

Recently, DNA barcoding has become an effective method for the accurate identification of species. This work is the first attempt to identify the bed bug species based on the MT-COI gene from Bangladesh. Nucleotide composition analysis revealed that A-T base content was higher than G-C base contents in mtDNA of C. hemipterus. The intraspecific genetic divergence range of C. hemipterus was 0.000-0.002. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that all sequences of C. hemipterus were clustered in the same major clade. Single nucleotide polymorphism was found in 53 positions of nucleotide sequences of C. hemipterus_4. Therefore, our results suggest that COI barcodes can contribute to the exact identification of bed bugs which can aid in pest management programs.
