We present a genome assembly from an individual male Mamestra brassicae (the Cabbage Moth; Arthropoda; Insecta; Lepidoptera; Noctuidae). The genome sequence is 576.2 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 15.38 kilobases in length. Gene annotation of this assembly on Ensembl identified 12,891 protein coding genes.
