To determine the molecular phylogeny of Monochamus spp. by analyzing variation in mitochondrial COⅠgene sequences. [Methods]  Mitochondrial COⅠgene sequences from 11 species were analyzed using MEGA 5.0. Phylogenetic trees for Monochamus were constructed using both the Parsimony (MP) and Bayesian-Inference (BI) methods. [Result]  Sequence analysis results indicate that, after alignment, 470 sites consisted of 169 variable sites (36.0%) and 301 conserved sites (64.0%). The transition versus transversion ratio (R-value) was 1 .03. Saturation plots indicate that combined analysis had better a linear relationship than the single gene analysis, suggesting that base mutations have not reached saturation. Phylogenetic trees based on MP and BI methods had similar topologies, which was consistent with the results of the traditional morphology. Our results support the taxonomic validity of the genus Monochamus. [Conclusion]  This study confirms that sequence analysis is an effective method for studying the taxonomy of Monochamus.
