We de novo assembled the complete mitochondrial genome of the green peach aphid, Myzus persicae, using its genomic DNA isolated from the bell pepper in Korea. The circular mitogenome of M. persicae is 16,936 bp long and contains the standard 37 genes: 13 protein-coding genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes, and 22 transfer RNA genes, as well as a single control region of 798 bp. Given the high AT ratio (84.1\%) of the M. persicae mitogenome, we found, through the comparison of the Chinese M. persicae mitogenomes, that approximately 1.6\% of the mitogenome is polymorphic, including 30 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), 12 insertions and deletions (INDELs), and large sequence variations in the control region. To resolve the phylogenetic position of M. persicae, we analyzed all mitochondrial protein-coding genes from 38 species within the Aphidoidea superfamily, with Adelges laricis as an outgroup. Our M. persicae sample was significantly grouped with three existing M. persicae samples, and the species belonging to the family Aphididae formed a monophyletic clade.
