We present a genome assembly from an individual female Blastobasis adustella (the Dingy Dowd; Arthropoda; Insecta; Lepidoptera; Blastobasidae). The genome sequence is 557.4 megabases in span. Most of the assembly is scaffolded into 30 chromosomal pseudomolecules, including the Z sex chromosome. The mitochondrial genome has also been assembled and is 15.29 kilobases in length. Gene annotation of this assembly on Ensembl identified 9,783 protein coding genes.
