Multiple contigs of the mitochondrial genome were obtained due to the presence of an extended variable number tandem repeat (VNTR) region corresponding to the control region, with different copy numbers (ranging from 5 to 9) of an 823 bp repeat unit. We designated the most abundant mitochondrial genome variant (6 repeat copies) as the mitochondrial genome sequence and included it with the primary assembly deposited in GenBank.
