Diagnosis. Metendothenia ordospina  is most similar to M. fidelis Diakonoff  in wing shape and pattern. However, the male genitalia of M. ordospina  differ from those of M. fidelis  in having the apex of the cucullus more truncate, the base of the cucullus with a distinct row of longer spiniform setae, and the right sacculus with a smaller group of

bristles medially. In contrast, M. fidelis  has a rounded apex of the cucullus, the base of the cucullus has a short spiniform setae, and the right sacculus has a larger group of bristles medially.

Description. Head ( Fig. 6 View Figure ): Lower frons cream, upper frons pale brown, vertex pale brown mixed with blackish brown, labial palpi porrect, first segment cream mixed with pale brown, second segment pale brown mixed with brown, with dark brown patch medially, third segment pale brown; antenna brown, reaching to middle of forewing. Thorax: Pronotal collar, mesonotum, posterior crest pale brown with narrow, dark brown transverse band, tegulae pale brown, with basal 1/3 dark brown; hindtibia with long hair pencils, basally dark brown, remainder cream ( Fig. 11 View Figure ). Forewing subrectangular, length 7.0– 7.5 mm in male ( Fig. 3 View Figure ) (n = 8), 6.5–7.0 mm in female ( Fig. 4 View Figure ) (n = 3); costal strigulae well developed, whitish marks separated by dark brown, some pairs of strigulae divided by blackish streaks; ground color pale brown, basally 0.4 of wing with irregular, broken basal patch, brown mixed with dark brown, present as longitudinal stripe below costa, crescent-shaped patch ventrobasally, subtriangular mark on dorsum, surrounded by diffuse, sinuate striae, brown to dark brown; median patch large, apically divided into three wedge-shaped parts, blackish brown, pretornal patch rounded, confluent with outer portion of median fascia, brown mixed with dark brown, with dorsum slightly sinuate apically, outer margin with triangular spot near middle, angled towards costa, apical 1/4 with elongate, triangular mark, brown mixed with dark brown, extending from termen between M2 and CuA1 angled towards costa, and a thin line between R5 on termen and R3 on costa, wing apex with dark brown spot; underside grayish brown, with cream strigulae along costal margin. Hindwing subtriangular, brown, outer margin sinuate, widely concave near anal margin; anal margin modified, long, thickened into rolled tube of scent producing structures ( Figs. 7–8 View Figure ); underside gray. Abdomen: Male genitalia ( Figs. 15–16 View Figure ) with tegumen subrectangular, with large, rounded projecting shoulders; uncus moderately long, widest at base, slightly tapered to apex, moderately dense, short setae, except apex with dense bristles, curved ventrally; socii twice as long as uncus, band shaped, apices rounded, with moderately dense setae; gnathos a weakly sclerotized, widened band; vinculum moderately wide; juxta subrectangular; caulis very short, anellus wide, cup-shaped; phallus moderately long, basal half swollen, apical half concave ventrally, truncated apically; valvae asymmetrical; left valva with moderately large excavation on dorsal margin connected to costal hook, sacculus with group of dense scale sockets basally, ventroapically with large group of long, dense setae; cucullus subrectangular, slightly widened at rounded apex, with dense bristles on apicoventral margin, basal margin forming a moderately wide, subtriangular lobe projecting towards sacculus, lobe with row of 10 long, stout, spiniform setae; right valva with moderately large excavation on dorsal margin connected to costal hook, sacculus basally with group of dense scale sockets, medially with a cluster of dense, long setae, ventroapically strongly swollen, covered with moderately dense setae, longer than setae on left valva, some setae with a distinct small hook near apex ( Fig. 16 View Figure ); right cucullus narrower than left, subrectangular, parallel margined, apex slightly truncated, bristles dense, except sparsely setose dorsobasally, basal margin with moderately wide, rounded lobe projecting towards sacculus, lobe with row of 8 long, stout, spiniform setae reaching dorsal margin of sacculus. Female genitalia ( Figs. 19–21 View Figure ) with papillae anales narrow; apophyses posteriores as long as apophyses anteriores; sternum 7 with posterior half slightly sclerotized, posterior margin folded inwardly, with a wide, U-shaped emargination medially, scale sockets dense; tergum 8 with dense scale sockets along posterior margin reaching triangular lateral extensions; ostium bursae opening behind emargination of sternum 7, surrounded by raised, asymmetrical, dome-shaped sterigma, densely microtriciate, lamella antevaginalis forming a narrow band connected to complex, asymmetrical lamella postvaginalis, with two different sizes of subtriangular excavations, connected to large, weakly sclerotized plate, densely microtrichiate; ductus bursae ca 0.57 length of corpus bursae; colliculum forming two narrow sclerites on opposite sides of ductus, middle of ductus bursae with large, weakly sclerotized band; ductus seminalis originating between colliculum and weakly sclerotized band; corpus bursae with moderately large scobination patch (= signum).
