Type locality: Sweden (Upsala).

Adult ( Fig. 11View FIGURES 4 – 11): Wing expanse 20.0 mm. Forewing with R 4 and R 5 connate ( Fig. 62View FIGURES 61 – 65 a).

Material examined. 1 ♂, Jingyuan County (35 ° 29 ′ N, 106 ° 19 ′ E), Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, 2400 m, 8.viii. 2000, coll. Houhun Li & Shuxia Wang.

Host plants. Rosaceae  : Crataegus monogyna Jack.  , Malus domestica Borkh.  , Prunus divaricate Led.  , Persica vulgaris Mill.  , Cerasus Mill.  , Pyrus communis Linn.  , Sorbus aucuparia Linn.  ( Zagulajev, 1989; Agassiz, 1996; Kozhevnikova, 2005; Gershenson & Kozhevnikova 2013).

Distribution. China (Beijng, Inner Mongolia, Ningxia, Qinghai), Korea, Mongolia, Russia, Asia Minor, East Mediterranean, Europe.

Diagnosis. This species is characterized by the forewing having a triangular yellowish brown patch between the dorsal 1 / 4 and 3 / 4 that extends anteriorly to middle of the cell, and an X-shaped pale brown pattern at end of the cell ( Fig. 11View FIGURES 4 – 11). Ypsolopha asperella  is similar to Y. flavida  sp. nov. in the male genitalia, but can be distinguished by the degenerated uncus and the special cornuti that are composed of two rows of microspines and five large apical thorns ( Fig. 111View FIGURES 111 – 116). In Y. flavida  sp. nov., the uncus is subulate and the cornuti are composed of two long thorns ( Fig. 110View FIGURES 105 – 110).
