Mitochondrial DNA sequences have been used extensively for studies of phylogeny, biogeography, and systematics in a vast array of taxa. In crayfish, the most widely used mitochondrial sequences are from the genes 16S ribosomal RNA, 12S ribosomal RNA, and cytochrome oxidase I. Other regions might perform well for certain questions, and entire mtDNA genome sequences might be very useful for phylogenetic studies, but these uses are curtailed by lack of sequence information. The complete mitochondrial genome from an individual of Orconectes cf. ozarkae (Williams) was sequenced, assembled, and annotated. The circular genome was 15,815 base pairs in length, and included the complement of 37 genes expected for metazoans, two ribosomal RNA genes, thirteen protein coding genes, and 22 tRNA genes. The gene order is equivalent to other species of crayfish from the family Cambaridae.
