We present a genome assembly from an individual female Archips xylosteana (the Variegated Golden Tortrix; Arthropoda; Insecta; Lepidoptera; Tortricidae). The genome sequence is 650.6 megabases in span. Most of the assembly is scaffolded into 31 chromosomal pseudomolecules, including the W and Z sex chromosomes. The mitochondrial genome has also been assembled and is 16.39 kilobases in length. Gene annotation of this assembly on Ensembl identified 19,861 protein coding genes.
