The plastome sequences of Diospyros blancoi A. DC. (Ebenaceae) were completed in this study (NCBI acc. no. KX426216). The gene order and structure of the D. blancoi plastome are collinear with the typical plastome of land plants. The complete plastome size is 157,745 bp in length and consists of a large single-copy region of 87,246 bp and a small single-copy region of 18,323 bp, which are separated by a pair of 26,088 bp-long inverted repeat regions. The overall A-T content of the plastome sequence is 62.6%. The plastome contains 113 genes, of which 79 are protein-coding genes, 30 are tRNA genes, and 4 are rRNA genes. Sixteen genes contain one intron and two genes have two introns. A total of 45 simple sequence loci were identified from the genome. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that D. blancoi is a sister group of Primulaceae with 100% bootstrap support.
