Highlights •Genome-wide searches identified 80 TIL domain-containing peptides from arthropods.•Genomic organizations of the TIL peptides show extensive polymorphisms.•The evolution of the TIL peptide genes was dominated by intron gain.•Some TIL peptide genes overlap on the chromosome.•Alternative splicing contributed to the diversity of the TIL peptides.
