Abstract

Anaphalis margaritacea var. yedoensis is a perennial herb adapted to the severe environment of pebbled river banks, where it is frequently found. In this study, we determined the complete chloroplast genome of A. margaritacea var. yedoensis and uncovered its phylogenetic relationships with other members of Gnaphalieae. The total chloroplast genome size of A. margaritaceae var. yedoensis is 153,231 bp, with a large single-copy region (LSC) of 84,981 bp, a small single-copy region (SSC) of 18,481 bp and a pair of inverted repeat (IR) regions of 24,885 bp. A total of 136 genes were annotated, including 39 tRNA genes, 8 rRNA genes, and 89 protein-coding genes. Phylogenetic analysis showed that A. margaritacea var. yedoensis and another Anaphalis species, A. sinica, do not form a monophyletic group, supporting previous phylogenetic studies using some specific regions of cpDNA that showed the genus Anaphalis is non-monophyletic.
