Hariotina reticulata P. A. Dangeard 1889 (Sphaeropleales, Chlorophyta) is a common member of the summer phytoplankton of meso- to highly eutrophic water bodies with a worldwide distribution. Here, we report the draft whole-genome shotgun sequencing of H. reticulata strain SAG 8.81. The final assembly comprises 107,596,510bp with over 15,219 scaffolds (>100bp). This whole-genome project is publicly available in the CNSA ( of CNGBdb under the accession number CNP0000705.
