Eupoecilia inouei Kawabe, 1972: 250   ; Kawabe, 1982, 1: 156; Byun et al., 1998: 84; Kuznetsov, 2001: 93; Liu & Li, 2002: 56. TL: Japan (Honshu, Yamanashi Prefecture, Kagosaka-toge, base of Mount Fuji).

Material examined. CHINA: Henan Province: 6 ɗɗ, 1 Ψ, Baotianman, Neixiang, 1350 m, 13–15.vii. 1998 (Houhun Li); 8 ɗɗ, 2 ΨΨ, Mt. Baiyun, Songxian, 1580 m, 18–24.vii. 2002 (Xinpu Wang); 1 ɗ, Mt. Huaguo, Yiyang, 1000 m, 3.viii. 2006 (Denghui Kuang & Hui Zhen). Ningxia Huizu Autonomous Region: 1 ɗ, Jingyuan, 2400 m, 8.viii. 2000 (Houhun Li & Shuxia Wang). Guizhou Province: 1 ɗ, Mt. Fanjing, 2100 m, 30.vii. 2001 (Houhun Li & Xinpu Wang). Shaanxi Province: 1 ɗ, Fengxian, 1600 m, 9.vii. 1988 (Houhun Li). Jilin Province: 2 ΨΨ, Erdao, 760 m, 1.viii. 2004 (Aihuan Zhang). Hebei Province: 1 ɗ, 2 ΨΨ, Mt. Wuling, Xinglong, 1800 m, 1.viii. 2000 (Yanli Du & Zhendong Li). Hunan Province: 1 Ψ, Sangzhi, 1250 m, 12.viii. 2001 (Houhun Li & Xinpu Wang).

Distribution. China (Guizhou, Hebei, Henan, Hunan, Jiangxi, Jilin, Ningxia, Shaanxi), Japan, Korea, Russia.

Diagnosis. Wing expanse 13.0–16.0 mm. This species is superficially similar to E. angustana   , but can be distinguished by two features of the male genitalia: the subquadrate valva and the longer aedeagus, twice the length of valva. In E. angustana   the valva is subtriangular; and the aedeagus is about 1.25 times length of valva ( Fig. 2 View FIGURE 2 c). Eupoecilia inouei   is also similar to E. ambiguella   , sharing a broad subquadrate valva in the male genitalia, but it can be distinguished from the latter by the anterior portion of the forewing median fascia being as broad as the posterior portion ( Fig. 1 View FIGURE 1 e); the sacculus without spines in the male genitalia ( Fig. 3 View FIGURE 3 b); and the ductus bursae broaden posteriorly in the female genitalia ( Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 d). In E. ambiguella   the anterior portion of the median fascia is broader than the posterior portion ( Fig. 1 View FIGURE 1 b); the sacculus has spines at the apex ( Fig. 2 View FIGURE 2 b); and the ductus bursae is not broaden posteriorly ( Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 b).
