Laodelphax striatellus (Fallén, 1826) is one of key rice pests in Northeast Asia. We have determined the mitochondrial genome of L. striatellus collected in a mid-western part of Korean peninsula. The circular mitogenome of L. striatellus is 16,359 bp long including 13 protein-coding genes, two ribosomal RNA genes, 22 transfer RNAs, and a single large non-coding region of 1,972 bp. The base composition was AT-biased (77.3\%). In comparison of the two Chinese L. striatellus mitogenomes with Korean mitogenome, total 140 and 40 single nucleotide polymorphisms and 166 and 118 insertions and deletions were identified, presenting intra-species variations based on geographical distribution.
