Amphiura is a widely distributed genus of Ophiuroidea from various environment, play an important role in evolution. Here, we reported a complete mitochondrial genome of Amphiura sp. which was collected from a deep sea seamount in the West Pacific. The mitogenome is 15,457 in length, including 13 protein-coding genes, 2 rRNA genes, and 22 tRNA genes. All genes are arranged in the same order of published mitogenomes in the same genus. The phylogenetic analysis support monophyly of the family Amphiuridae but not for the genus Amphiura.
