We present a genome assembly from two female Monopis laevigella specimens (the Skin Moth; Arthropoda; Insecta; Lepidoptera; Tineidae). The genome sequences are 632.6 and 625.5 megabases in span. For both genomes, most of the assembly is scaffolded into 25 chromosomal pseudomolecules, including the Z sex chromosome. The mitochondrial genomes were also assembled and are 18.9 and 18.89 kilobases in length.
