The complete mitochondrial genome was sequenced in a mangrove rivulus Kryptolebias marmoratus from western Florida using next-generation sequencing. The 17 329 bp-long genome was identical in length and 99.8% similar to a previously published genome of this species from a specimen of unknown geographic origin. Gene arrangement in K. marmoratus is similar to other cyprinodontiform fishes, except for the presence of a second copy of the control region inserted upstream of the nad1 gene.
