In the present study, the complete mitochondrial genome of a blowfly Calliphora nigribarbis has been sequenced and analyzed. The length of complete the mitochondrial genome is 16,279 bp, with 39.50% A, 13.20% C, 9.30% G, and 38.0% T nucleotide distribution. The complete mitochondrial genome consists of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNAs, and 2 ribosomal RNAs likewise the most metazoan mitochondrial genomes. Furthermore, phylogenetic relationships of C. nigribarbis in the subfamily Calliphorinae investigated. The results suggested that C. vomitoria is the most related species to C. nigribarbis and the genus Calliphora is not monophyletic. This study provides the first complete mitochondrial genome sequence for the species.
