The potato tuberworm,  Phthorimaea operculella Zeller, is an oligophagous pest feeding on crops mainly belonging to the family Solanaceae. It is one of the most destructive pests of potato worldwide and attacks foliage and tubers in the field and in storage. However, the lack of a high-quality reference genome has hindered the association of phenotypic traits with their genetic basis. Here, we report on the genome assembly of  P .  operculella  at the chromosomal level. Using Illumina, Nanopore and Hi-C sequencing, a 648.2?Mb genome was generated from 665 contigs, with an N50 length of 3.2?Mb, and 92.0% (596/648.2?Mb) of the assembly was anchored to 29 chromosomes. In total, 16619 genes were annotated, and 92.4% of BUSCO genes were fully represented. The chromosome-level genome of  P .  operculella  will provide a significant resource for understanding the genetic basis for the biological study of this insect, and for promoting the integrative management of this pest in future.
