Cryptopone sauteri Wheeler, W.M., 1906, which is one of the common ant species in Ponerine, is found in forest floors of the Korean peninsula. We have determined the mitochondrial genome of C. sauteri. The circular mitogenome of C. sauteri is 15,367 bp including 13 protein-coding genes, two ribosomal RNA genes, 22 transfer RNAs, and a single large non-coding region of 448 bp. The base composition was AT-biased (82.0\%). Gene order of C. sauteri is almost same to that of Cardiocondyla obscurior even though the two species are in different subfamilies. Phylogenetic tree agrees with the current phylogenetic placement of Cryptopone outside of all other ant mitochondrial genomes and in its own Poneroid clade. C. sauteri mitochondrial genome will be a useful resource for further analyses.
