Hipparchia autonoe (Esper, 1783) is a protected butterfly species found in Mt. Halla in South Korea. We have determined mitochondrial genome of H. autonoe collected in Mt. Halla. The circular mitogenome of H. autonoe is 15,300 bp long, which is shorter than previously sequenced mitogenome by 189 bp due to differences of tandem repeats. It includes 13 protein-coding genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes, and 22 transfer RNAs. The base composition was AT-biased (78.9\%). Nineteen single nucleotide polymorphisms and one insertion and deletion were identified between the two individuals of H. autonoe captured in Mt. Halla, presenting enough genetic diversity of H. autonoe within population.
