Thanks for the suggestions.

It's a TruSeq PCR-free library with an insert size around 470 bp according to the BioAnalyser. I did remove adaptors and contaminants with BBDuk2 (adapters.fa and phix174_ill files that ship with bbtools) but that only removed 0.05% of bases, so maybe I should be look again at the adaptor sequences.

It's a diploid insect. I extracted the DNA from a single, whole individual so there may be some [gut] flora in there... or yes, a repetitive genome, but let's hope not.

PacBio is too expensive for this project and we can't get enough DNA, but I'm looking into getting a MinION for gap closing.
