We present a genome assembly from an individual female Ochropleura plecta (the Flame Shoulder; Arthropoda; Insecta; Lepidoptera; Noctuidae). The genome sequence is 643.9 megabases in span. Most of the assembly is scaffolded into 32 chromosomal pseudomolecules, including the W and Z sex chromosomes. The mitochondrial genome has also been assembled and is 15.34 kilobases in length. Gene annotation of this assembly on Ensembl identified 19,016 protein coding genes.
