Abstract Spotted longbarbel catfish, Hemibagrus guttatus (Siluriformes, Bagridae), is regarded as one of the "four famous fish" in the Pearl River system in China. So far, very few genomic resources from this species were available. In the present study, the complete mitochondrial genome of H. guttatus was determined to be 16,528 bp long circular molecule with a typical gene arrangement of vertebrate mitochondrial DNA. It includes 22 transfer RNA genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes, 13 protein-coding genes, and a non-coding control region (D-loop). The complete mtDNA genome sequence obtained in this study would be useful for studying genetic diversity and phylogenetics in H. guttatus and related taxa in future.
