Duchesnea chrysantha (Zoll. & Moritzi) Miq. is a traditional medicinal species of genus Duchesnea nested in Potentilla genus but having a significant key to be independent genus. In this study, we presented first complete chloroplast genome of D. chrysantha which is 156,329 bp long and has four subregions: 85,568 bp of large single copy (LSC) and 18,757 bp of small single copy (SSC) regions are separated by 26,002 bp of inverted repeat (IR) regions including 129 genes (84 protein-coding genes, 8 rRNAs, and 37 tRNAs). The overall GC content of the chloroplast genome is 37.0% and those in the LSC, SSC, and IR regions are 34.9%, 30.5%, and 42.8%, respectively. Phylogenetic trees show that D. chrysantha is clustered with D. indica and Duchesnea clade is nested in Potentilla clade with high bootstrap support.
