Collectotrichum acutatum is a fungal plant pathogen that causes pre- and post-harvest anthracnose on a wide range of plants worldwide. The complete mitochondrial genome of C. acutatum has been determined for the first time. This study revealed that the mitogenome of C. acutatum is a closed circular molecule of 30 892?bp in length, with a G?+?C content of 34.7%, which include 15 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, and two rRNA genes. All the protein-coding genes, accounting for 46.6% of the C. acutatum mitogenome, start with the standard ATG codon and end with the TAA termination codon except for nad6 gene using the TAG termination codon. The mitogenome information of C. acutatum can provide molecular basis for further studies on molecular systematics and evolutionary dynamics.
