The complete plastome sequence of Amaryllis belladonna L. is assembled and annotated. This is the type species of Amaryllis and therefore the type of the family Amaryllidaceae and as such, is important to document the phylogenetic position of the family. The plastome sequence has a length of 158,145 bp, with the large single copy (LSC) regions comprising 85,963 bp, the small single copy (SSC) 18634 bp and two identical inverted repeats (IR) regions each of 26,774 bp. Phylogenetic analysis fully resolved Amaryllis in a clade with Crinum L. in the Amaryllidoideae, as expected, with the Allioideae as a sister group. Agapanthus (Agapanthoideae) is a sister to the other two subfamilies in the Amaryllidaceae. The phylogenetic tree produced corresponds to previous topologies based on plastome molecular markers including matK, ndhF and rbcL. This is the first paper reporting the whole plastome comparison of the type genera of all three subfamilies in the Amaryllidaceae.
