Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present a genome assembly based on an individual female Aphantopus hyperantus, also known as Maniola hyperantus (the ringlet butterfly; Arthropoda; Insect a; Lepidoptera, Nymphalidae), scaffolded using data from a second, unrelated specimen. The genome sequenceis 411 megabases in span. The majority of the assembly is scaffolded into 29 chromosomal pseudomolecules, including the Z sex chromosome.
