We have determined the mitochondrial genome of Reticulitermes kanmonensis Takematsu, 1999. The total length of the R. kanmonensis is 16,484 bp with 66.1\% A + T content. It consists of 13 PCGs, 22 tRNA, 2 rRNA genes and an A + T–rich control region. All the protein-coding genes used ATN as start codon. But the stop codons were TAA, TAG, and an incomplete termination codon (T) abutting an adjacent tRNA gene. The A + T–rich control region was 1680 bp in length with 70.4\% A + T content.
