The plastid genome (plastome) sequences from the monotypic endemic genus of Korea, Coreanomecon hylomeconoides Nakai, were completed in this study (NCBI No. KT274030). The complete plastome size was 158,824 bp in length, containing a pair of 26,685 bp inverted repeat (IR), which were separated by a large and small single copy (LSC, SSC) region of 86,916 bp and 18,538 bp, respectively. The overall GC contents were 38.8%. The plastome contained 112 genes, including protein-coding genes, 30 tRNA genes, 4 rRNA genes. Sixteen genes contained one intron and two genes had two introns. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that C. hylomeconoides was sister group of Papaver somniferum with 100% support value.
