Abstract The Metahomaloptera omeiensis is the only one species within the genus, Metahomaloptera. The complete mitochondrial genome of M. omeiensis was sequenced, which was 16,558 bp in length, including 13 protein-coding genes, 7 transfer RNA (tRNA) genes, 2 ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes and 1 control region. It has the typical circular molecule structure of vertebrate’s mitochondrial genome. The whole base composition was estimated to be 29.44% A, 25.44% T, 28.28% C and 16.84% G with AT bias of 54.88%. The complete mitogenome of M. omeiensis provides the basis for genetic resources and phylogenetic analyses on this freshwater fish species.
