The InBIO Barcoding Initiative Database: Mondeguina, a new genus for Apatetris mediterranella Nel & Varenne, 2012, with description of a new species from Portugal (Lepidoptera, Gelechiidae)

Latest version published by CIBIO (Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources) Portugal on Sep 10, 2020 CIBIO (Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources) Portugal

The dataset contains three records of moth specimens of the family Gelechiidae collected from 2015 to 2018 in continental Portugal. Specimens were detected and captured using mercury-vapor lamps to attract the insects. Captured specimens were identified to species level and preserved in 96% ethanol. A tissue sample, a leg, was collected from each individual, from which DNA was extracted. The DNA barcoding of these specimens was conducted within the InBIO Barcoding Initiative (IBI), funded by EnvMetaGen and PORBIOTA projects. DNA barcode sequences were deposited in BOLD (Barcode of Life Data System) online database. DNA extracts are deposited in the IBI collection at the CIBIO (Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources).

Project Data

The InBIO Barcoding Initiative aims to develop a reference collection of DNA barcoding sequences covering Portuguese invertebrate taxa. Within the project, a special focus is afforded to insects, given their relevance to food webs, ecosystems functioning, high diversity and limited number of DNA barcoding sequences of interest.

Identifier InBIO Barcoding Initiative
Funding InBIO Barcoding Initiative is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme under grant agreement No 668981 and by the project PORBIOTA — Portuguese E-Infrastructure for Information and Research on Biodiversity (POCI-01-0145-FEDER-022127), supported by Operational Thematic Program for Competitiveness and Internationalization (POCI), under the PORTUGAL 2020 Partnership Agreement, through the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER).
Study Area Description Specimens were collected in continental Portugal, in a total of three different localities. Sampling was conducted from 2015 to 2018.
Design Description Specimens in this dataset were collected in field work carried out between 2015 to 2018. Specimens were captured using mercury-vapor lamps to attract the insects.

Sampling Methods

Sampling of specimens was done at three different localities of continental Portugal. Sampling was conducted between 2015 to 2018. Captured specimens were preserved in 96% and morphologically identified. DNA extracts are deposited in the InBIO Barcoding Initiative reference collection for downstream molecular analysis.

Study Extent Specimens were collected in three different localities of continental Portugal. Sampling was conducted from 2015 to 2018.
Quality Control The DNA barcoded specimen morphological identification was contrasted with the results of the Blast of the newly generated DNA barcode in BOLD Identification Engine. Prior submission to GBIF, data was checked for errors and inconsistencies with OpenRefine 3.3 (http://openrefine.org/).

Method step description:

  1. Sampling of specimens was done at three different localities of continental Portugal, between 2015 and 2018. Specimens were detected and captured at night by using mercury-vapor lamps as lures, although part of the specimens were collected a few metres away from the light, resting on grasses.
  2. The captured specimens were preserved in 96% ethanol.
  3. The specimens were morphologically identified using a binocular stereoscopic microscope and resorting to available literature (Corley, Rosete & Ferreira, 2017; Gozmány, 1954; Janse, 1949–1954, Junnilainen & Nupponen, 2010; Nel & Varenne, 2012; Sakamaki, 2000; Staudinger, 1880).
  4. DNA barcodes were sequenced from all specimens. For this, one leg was removed from each individual from which a 658 bp COI DNA barcode fragment was extracted, amplified and sequenced.
  5. The obtained sequences were submitted to BOLD database and the specimens’ morphological identification was contrasted with the results of the BLAST of the newly generated DNA barcode in BOLD Identification Engine.
  6. Prior submission to GBIF, data was checked for errors and inconsistencies with OpenRefine 3.3 (http://openrefine.org/).
