This paper describes the genomic architecture of a complete mitogenome from a red-bellied parrot (Poicephalus rufiventris). The mitogenome sequence was circular and 15,524 bp in length. Compared to other Psittacidae species, the genome encoded a conserved structure consisting of 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), two rRNA genes, 21 tRNA genes, and two control regions, however, the mitogenome was missing a part of control region and a tRNA-Leu. The lengths of 12S and 16S ribosomal RNA were 975 bp and 1569 bp, respectively. The overall base composition of the mitogenome of P. rufiventris was dominated by higher AT (51.6%) than GC (48.4%) content. The complete mitogenome sequence determined in this study would be useful to track the deeper evolutionary history and the conservation of P. rufiventris.
