Coelastrum proboscideum Bohlin, 1896 (Sphaeropleales, Scenedesmaceae, Chlorophyta) is a coenobial species with cosmopolitan distribution in diverse freshwater habitats. Coelastrum spp. are widely tested for biotechnological applications such as carotenoid and lipid production, and in bioremediation of wastewater. Here, we report the draft genome of C. proboscideum var. dilatatum strain SAG 217-2. The final assembly comprised 125,935,854 bp with over 8357 scaffolds. The whole-genome data is publicly available in the Nucleotide Sequence Archive (CNSA) of China National GeneBank (CNGB) ( under the accession number CNA0014153.
