Abstract
The Korean torrent catfish (Liobagrus andersoni), an endemic species in Korea, is a member of the family Amblycipitidae. Herein, we report the first sequencing and assembly of the complete mitochondrial genome of L. andersoni. The complete mitochondrial genome is 16,514 bp long, consisting of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, two rRNA genes, and a control region. It has the typical vertebrate mitochondrial gene arrangement. Phylogenetic analysis using mitochondrial genomes of 21 species showed that L. andersoni was clustered with L. marginatoides and L. nigricauda. This mitochondrial genome provides potentially important resources for addressing taxonomic issues and studying molecular evolution.
