The complete mitochondrial genome sequenced and analyzed from a black garbage fly, Hydrotaea ignava which is critically important species for forensic investigations. The size of mitochondrial genome is 17,026 bp with 40.8% A, 11.2% C, 8.2% G and 39.8% T distribution. This is the longest within complete mitochondrial genome records of the Muscidae species. The mitochondrial genome is composed of 13 protein coding, two ribosomal RNA and 22 tRNA genes and a putative control region. Furthermore, phylogenetic relationships of the superfamily Muscoidea evaluated due to mitochondrial protein coding genes. The results showed that the H. ignava placed in the paraphyletic Muscidae family and early diverged from a clade including Muscidae, Anthomyiidae and Scathophagidae species. This is the first complete mitochondrial genome for the genus Hydrotaea.
