We sequenced and assembled four whole mitogenome sequences of the bottom-dwelling fish yellowtail stargazer Uranoscopus cognatus isolated from East Peninsular Malaysia and West Coast of Thailand. The final partitioned nucleotide alignment consists of 14,098 bp and supports the monophyly of the genus Uranoscopus. Contrary to various mitogenome reports, we also made available the raw Illumina sequencing reads that can be further mined for microsatellite markers and repetitive nuclear genes.
