Ancherythroculter nigrocauda is a fish endemic to the upper reaches of the Yangtze River in China. In this study, we determined and analyzed the complete mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequence of this species. The mitogenome is 16,623 bp in length. It consists of 13 protein-coding genes, 2 rRNA genes, 22 tRNA genes, and 2 non-coding regions: origin of light-strand replication (O(L)) and control region (D-loop). This mitogenome sequence data can contribute to elucidate the evolutionary mechanisms, molecular systematics, and biogeography of Ancherythroculter and is useful to conservation genetics and stock evaluation for A. nigrocauda.
