Notes. The taxon moesta has been treated by some authors (Hacker 1990; Ronkay et al. 2001) as a Siberian subspecies of M. adusta  . Examination of the genitalia of the lectotype of Hadena adusta  var. moesta  ( Fig. 112View FIGURES 105 – 112) showed that it is conspecific with M. bathensis  . The taxon moesta is a monotonous brownish grey form of M. bathensis  occuring in East Palaearctic. The taxon urupino was treated by Ronkay et al. (2001) as a subspecies of M. bathensis  , but Kononenko (2005) treated it as a junior synonym of bathensis  . By the examination of the material from Kurile Islands and Kamchatka, it was found that the reddish form described by Bryk (1942) as urupino ( Figs 37, 38View FIGURES 31 – 40) occurs together with darker form common in Europe ( Fig. 35View FIGURES 31 – 40) and the monotonous brownish grey form described as moesta ( Fig. 36View FIGURES 31 – 40). Thus, Pacific populations of M. bathensis  cannot be treated as a distinct subspecies.

Diagnosis. Wingspan 35–49 mm. The external differences of M. bathensis  are described in diagnoses of M. adusta  and M. kobyakovi  . The male genitalia ( Figs 75, 76View FIGURES 75 – 80, 92View FIGURES 87 – 96) differ from M. adusta  in the somewhat narrower juxta with shorter serrated parts of its apical processes (in M. bathensis  distal third, but in M. adusta  distal half serrate), larger elongated cucullus with longer corona, more curved digitus, apically obtuse carina, shorter eversible dorso-lateral bar beginning from apex of carina and having longer teeth basally; and from M. kobyakovi  in the somewhat narrower juxta with shorter serrated parts of its apical processes (in M. bathensis  distal third, but in M. kobyakovi  distal half serrate), larger elongated cucullus with longer corona, more curved digitus, shorter eversible dorso-lateral bar of carina with longer teeth basally. The female genitalia ( Figs 112View FIGURES 105 – 112, 113View FIGURES 113 – 120) differ from M. adusta  in the narrower ostium bursae with a concave posterior margin, narrower ductus bursae and smaller signum; and from M. kobyakovi  in the narrower ostium bursae with a concave posterior margin, and somewhat narrower corpus bursae.

Distribution. Eurasiatic Palaearctic. North Europe, NE European part of Russia, Ural, South Siberia, Transbaikalia, Mongolia, Russian Far East (including Kamchatka and Kurile islands), Northeastern China (Manchuria), Korea, Japan.
