Abstract
In this study, we determined the complete mitochondrial genome of the Picasso panda clownfish for the first time. The length of the whole mitogenome is 16,652 bp long and contained 13 protein-coding genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes, 22 transfer RNA genes, 2 non-coding regions and 1 control region(D-lop). The mitochondrial genome of the Picasso panda clownfish consisted of A = 29.19%, T = 25.49%, G = 15.93% and C = 29.40% (AT-skew = 0.067 and GC-skew = −0.297). Molecular phylogenetic analysis suggested that Amphiprion ocellaris, Amphiprion percula, Premnas biaculeatus and the Picasso panda clownfish clustered in one branch of the phylogenetic tree. Picasso panda clownfishand and A. ocellaris are most closely related.
