In this paper, we analyzed the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Ocypode stimpsoni. Whole-genome sequencing was performed using the MGISEQ-2000 platform. The length of the complete mitochondrial genome was 15,557 bp, and data were submitted to NCBI (MN917464). The genome consisted of 67.8% A + T bias, it included 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), two rRNA genes, 22 tRNA genes, and a putative control region. The phylogenetic tree was constructed based on sequences of 13 PCGs identified by the maximum likelihood (ML) method. Collectively, the results support the original taxonomy assigned, O. stimpsoni belongs to Ocypodidae, Ocypodoidea. In addition, species in Ocypodoidea and Grapsoidea have a reciprocal paraphyly relationship, as demonstrated in previous studies.
