Abstract:

"We present a genome assembly from an individual male Mimas tiliae (the lime hawk-moth; Arthropoda; Insecta; Lepidoptera; Sphingidae). The genome sequence is 478 megabases in span. The complete assembly is scaffolded into 29 chromosomal pseudomolecules, with the Z sex chromosome assembled."
