Corallodiscus flabellatus is a medicinal plant commonly used in southwest of China. In this study, we sequenced the complete chloroplast (cp) genome sequence of C. flabellatus to investigate its phylogenetic relationship in the family Gesneriaceae. The chloroplast genome of C. flabellatus was 156,614 bp in length with 43.2% overall GC content, including a large single copy (LSC) region of 87,429 bp, a small single copy (SSC) region of 17,871 bp and a pair of inverted repeats (IRs) of 25,657 bp. The cp genome contained 112 genes, including 79 protein coding genes, 29 tRNA genes, and 4 rRNA genes. The phylogenetic analysis indicated C. flabellatus was closely related to Oreocharis mileensis.
