The South America fruit fly Anastrepha fraterculus s.l. is an important pest of fruits in Latin America and it is really a complex with at least eight cryptic species. In this work, we report the complete mitochondrial genome for the Andean morphotype of A. fraterculus. The mitochondrial genome is 16,739 nucleotides in size; includes 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, and 2 rRNA genes. Phylogenetic analysis was performed using all the protein-coding genes with other 19 species from Tephritidae.
