We present a genome assembly from an individual male Hemithea aestivaria (the Common Emerald; Arthropoda; Insecta; Lepidoptera; Geometridae). The genome sequence is 501.7 megabases in span. Most of the assembly is scaffolded into 31 chromosomal pseudomolecules, including the Z sex chromosome. The mitochondrial genome has also been assembled and is 17.05 kilobases in length. Gene annotation of this assembly on Ensembl identified 18,477 protein coding genes.
