Ulva flexuosa, one kind of green tide algae, has outbroken in the Yellow Sea of China during the past 10 years. The blooms have now become the world’s largest green tide, making great disaster for the ecosystem. In the present study, we sequenced the mitochondrial genome of U. flexuosa for the first time (GenBank Accession Number KX455878). It was found that the annular-shape genome was made up of 71545 bases pairs, including 29 protein coding genes. We then aligned amino acid of chlorophyta species containing the 29 genes in series as cladogram, which shows U. flexuosa is the closest sister species of U. fasciata, U. prolifera and U. linza.
