In this study, we report the first complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the Aquatic Coralsnake Micrurus surinamensis. The mitochondrial genome lengthis 17,375 bp, comprising 13 protein-coding genes, 2 rRNA (12S and 16S) and 22 tRNA, as well as two typical control regions. Phylogenetic analysis based upon 13 protein-coding genes showed clusters based on terrestrial and marine species.
