Ypsolopha acerella Ponomarenko, Sohn et Zinchenko, 2011: 21 View Cited Treatment   .

Type locality: Korea (Gyonggi; Gangwon), Rusia (Primorskii krai, Far East).

Adult ( Fig. 19View FIGURES 19 – 25): Wing expanse 23.0−25.0 mm. Forewing with R 4 and R 5 separated ( Fig. 70View FIGURES 69 – 74).

Material examined. 3 ♂♂, 2 ♀♀, Mt. Liupan (35 ° 42 ′ N, 106 ° 11 ′ E), Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, 1900 m, 27.vi. 2008, coll. Shulian Hao & Zhiwei Zhang, genitalia slide No. JQ08021♂.

Diagnosis. This species is characterized by the forewing having a rectangular black patch of erect scales beyond middle of the dorsum ( Fig. 19View FIGURES 19 – 25). Ypsolopha acerella  is similar to Y. yangi Ponomarenko et Sohn  superficially, but can be separated by the forewing without rows of ocherous brown scales on the distal 2 / 3. Ypsolopha acerella  is also similar to Y. parallela (Caradja)  in the male genitalia, but can be distinguished by the slender coecum that is about 1 / 3 length of the phallus ( Fig. 119View FIGURES 117 – 122), which is 1 / 6 length of the phallus in the latter ( Fig. 112View FIGURES 111 – 116). The female genitalia of this species are characterized by the specific lamella postvaginalis being a long band with rounded posterior margin ( Fig. 167View FIGURES 164 – 169).

Host plant. Sapindaceae  : Acer ginnala Maxim. ( Ponomarenko et al. 2011)  .

Distribution. China (Ningxia), Korea, Russia (Far East).

Remarks. This species is newly recorded for China.
