The complete mitochondrial genome of Eumeta variegate, largest bagworm moth in Japan, has been sequenced using a nanopore sequencer as a single long read. The genome has a total length of 16,601 bp, consisting of 13 protein-coding genes, 20 tRNA, 2 rRNA genes, and an AT-rich control region. The nucleotide composition was extremely AT-rich, with 42.4% A, 40.4% T, 6.67% G, and 10.6% C. This is the second report of a complete mitochondrial genome of Psychidae, and the sequence information together with a phylogenetic analysis would provide a reference data in the future studies of Lepidoptera and Psychidae.
