Mosquitoes as Sabethes chloropterus, Sabethes glaucodaemon, Sabethes belisarioi are species of medical and epidemiological importance for arboviruses transmission such as yellow fever and St. Louis encephalitis. Despite this, no information about these three species mitochondrial DNA has been found in literature. Our study presents a mitochondrial genome description, including identity, SNPs, mutation rate, and phylogeny analysis using COX1, COX2, NADH4, NADH5, CYOB genes. The Sa. chloropterus, Sa. glaucodaemon and Sa. belisaroi mitochondrial genome sizes 15.609 bp, 15.620 bp, 15.907 bp, respectively, with 37 functional genes, presenting about 4.982 single nucleotide polymorphisms and 13.291 identical sites between them, besides all genes with dN/dS < 1 ratio, and also a greater approximation between Sa. glaucodaemon and Sa. chloropterus than with Sa. belisarioi. Due to the importance of mitochondrial DNA for population structure studies, evolution, and others, we expect that this data can contribute to other studies related to these mosquitoes and their viruses.
