We assembled a complete mitogenome of an Asian skipper butterfly Burara striata (Hesperiidae, Coeliadinae), the first representative of the genus Burara, from next generation sequencing reads. The 15327 bp mitogenome covers 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), 22 transfer RNA genes (tRNAs), 2 ribosomal RNA genes (rRNAs), and an A + T rich region. Its gene order is typical for mitogenomes of Lepidoptera. Phylogenetic analysis places Burara striata as a sister to Hasora, and Choaspes as a sister to both of these genera.
