Here, we present the draft genome sequence of Aspergillus thermomutatus (formerly known as Neosartorya pseudofischeri; strain HMR-AF-39/LSPQ-01276), a cryptic species of Aspergillus section Fumigati. This species is intrinsically resistant to antifungal azoles and is recognized as an agent of invasive aspergillosis among immunocompromised hosts.
