The complete plastid genome (plastome) sequences of Abeliophyllum distichum Nakai, a monotypic endemic genus of Korea, were determined in this study. The plastome of A. distichum was 1,559,825 bp in length (NCBI acc. no. KT274029) and contained a pair of inverted repeat regions (IRa and IRb) of 25,703 bp, which was divided into large single copy region (LSC) region of 86,742 bp and small single copy (SSC) region of 17,834 bp. The overall GC contents of the plastome were 37.8%, and in the LSC, SSC and IR regions were 35.8%, 32.0% and 43.2%. The plastome comprised 129 genes (112 unique), including 78 protein-coding genes, 30 tRNA genes, 4 rRNA genes. Phylogenetic analysis based on 83 genes from 41 plastomes showed that A. distichum was most closely related to Jasminum nudiflorum with strong support values.
