In this study, we determined the complete plastome sequence of Mangifera indica L. (Anacardiaceae) (NCBI acc. no. KX871231). The complete plastome is 157,780 bp in length, and consists of a large single copy of 86,673 bp and a small single copy of 18,349 bp, separated by two inverted repeats of 25,792 bp. The plastome contains 112 genes, of which 78 are protein-coding genes, 30 are tRNA genes, and four are rRNA genes. Sixteen genes contain one intron and two genes have two introns. The average A-T content of the plastome is 62.1%. The M. indica plastome has approximately 15 kb inversion between trnT-UGU and trnT-GGU. We identify a palindromic repeat of 18 bp (ATTCTTTTTTTTTTTTTT/AAAAAAAAAAAAAAGAAT) near the inversion breakpoints of M. indica plastome. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that M. indica is a sister group of Rhus chinensis with 100% bootstrap support. Anacardiaceae clade is a sister group of Boswellia sacra (Burseraceae) with 100% bootstrap support.
