We present a genome assembly from an individual male Clusia tigrina (a druid fly; Arthropoda; Insecta; Diptera; Clusiidae). The genome sequence is 1,216.4 megabases in span. Most of the assembly is scaffolded into 5 chromosomal pseudomolecules, including the X and Y sex chromosomes. The mitochondrial genome has also been assembled and is 17.68 kilobases in length.
