The complete mitochondrial genome of the tropical abalone, Haliotis asinina is sequenced and analyzed for the first time. The mitogenome is 16399 base pairs (bp) in length and contains 13 protein coding genes (PCGs), 2 ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes and 22 transfer RNA (tRNA) genes. The arrangement and orientation of genes compared with 10 available Haliotis mitogenomes were found to be identical. Phylogenetic analysis was conducted to assess their evolutionary relationships. The phylogenetic tree shows that H. asinina is closely related to H. ovina, H. diversicolor, H. varia, H. rubra and H. tuberculata. The genetic information gleaned from this study will be invaluable for the further studies of H. asinina.
