CompletenessClose to Standard

The fruit fly Drosophila willistoni (willistoni group, willistoni subgroup) has a distribution across Central and South America.

The species is one of 12 fruit fly genomes sequenced for a large comparative study by the Drosophila 12 Genomes Consortium. Its genome is 222 Mb in size and contains 15, 816 protein-coding genes (79% of which have homologues in D. melanogaster). Out of the 12 species D. willistoni has the most unusual genome due to several characteristics which included unusually skewed codon usage and increased transposable element content. It also appears to be the first animal known to lack selenoproteins.
