Dendrobium hancockii Rolfe is an endangered Orchidaceae species distributed in Southwest China. Here, we reported the complete chloroplast (cp) genome sequence and the cp genomic features of D. hancockii. The genome was 152,159 bp long with 129 genes comprising 83 protein-coding genes, 40 tRNA genes, and 6 rRNA genes. Most of the genes occurred as a single-copy, while 18 occurred in two copies. Phylogenetic analysis of a data set of cp genomes indicated that D. hancockii is closely related to that of other species in Dendrobium.
