Distribution. China (Hunan, Guizhou, Sichuan, Zhejiang), Japan.

Diagnosis. This species can be distinguished from its congeners by the large forewing length (wingspan 14.0̄ 15.5 mm) and yellow color, with dense transverse gray striae and a slightly hooked at apex.

Remarks. The holotype of this species was collected in China, labelled as “Kwanhsien/ China /F. 7.25” ( Moriuti 1969). Meyrick (1932) recorded the type locality as “N. China, Kwanhsien” in the original description.

Moriuti (1969) wrote N. China, and subsequently changed to C. China ( Moriuti 1977). Caradja (1931) clearly noted that Kwanhsien was in Chengdu, Sichuan Province. So the type locality of this species is Kwanhsien [now Dujiangyan County], Chengdu, Sichuan Province.
