Type locality: Germany.

Adult ( Fig. 21View FIGURES 19 – 25): Wing expanse 17.0−21.0 mm. Forewing with R 4 and R 5 separated ( Fig. 72View FIGURES 69 – 74).

Material examined. 1 ♂, Mt. Xinglong, Yuzhong County (35 ° 53 ′ N, 104 °06′ E), Gansu Province, 2178 m, 20.viii. 2007, coll. Feng Yang & Hanguang Gao; 4 ♂♂, Donglushanling, Horinger County (40 ° 23 ′ N, 111 ° 48 ′ E), Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, 1400−1480 m, 12−13.viii. 2007, coll. Houhun Li et al.; 5 ♂♂, Suyukou, Mt. Helan (38 ° 30 ′ N, 106 °06′ E), Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, 2000 m, 2−17.viii. 2006, coll. Feng Yang, Qi He et al.

Host plants. Rosaceae  : Malus Mill.  , Ptunus spinosa Linn.  ( Agassiz 1996; Kozhevnikova 2005).

Distribution. China (Gansu, Inner Mongolia, Ningxia, Shanxi), Russia, Asia Minor, Europe.

Diagnosis. This species is similar to Y. yangi Ponomarenko et Sohn  superficially, but differs in the forewing triangularly protruded at the apex ( Fig. 21View FIGURES 19 – 25) and the separated R 4 and R 5 ( Fig. 72View FIGURES 69 – 74); in Y. yangi  , the forewing is rounded at the apex ( Fig. 20View FIGURES 19 – 25), and R 4 is stalked with R 5 in the forewing ( Fig. 71View FIGURES 69 – 74). Ypsolopha horridella  is related to Y. scabrella (Linnaeus)  in the male genitalia, but differs in the saccus about 3 / 4 length of the socius and truncate at apex ( Fig. 121View FIGURES 117 – 122), which is as long as the socius and sharp at apex in the latter species ( Fig. 118View FIGURES 117 – 122).

Remarks. Caradja (1939) recorded this species from China based on the specimens collected in Mt. Mian, Shanxi Province. Sohn et al. (2010) assumed it a misidentification since it is not listed in Hua’s checklist (2005). We confirm its existence in China based on the previous literature and the specimens in our collection.
