Abstract

Black-faced bunting (Emberiza spodocephala) is a common small songbird with widely geographical range. In this study, the complete mitochondrial genome of the Emberiza spodocephala was determined. The study showed that the total length of the mitogenome was 16,796 bp as a circular DNA consists of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 rRNA genes, and 1 control region (CR). Overall base composition of the complete mitochondrial DNA was 29.81% A, 23.12% T, 32.51% C, and 14.56% G. The CR is 1215 bp in length and was located between the tRNA(Gln) and tRNA(Phe) genes. The mitochondrial genes from Emberiza spodocephala were overlapped in a total of 29 bp at 6 locations, as well as interleaved with a total of 96 bp intergenic spacers at 18 locations.
