Ypsolopha amoenellus (Christoph)  : Moriuti, 1977: 81; Moriuti, 1982: 209. Ypsolopha amoenella (Christoph)  : Sohn et al., 2010: 30. Type locality: Russia (Vladivostok).

Adult ( Fig. 6View FIGURES 4 – 11): Wing expanse 19.5−22.0 mm. Forewing with R 4 and R 5 short stalked ( Fig. 57View FIGURES 55 – 60).

Material examined. 1 ♂, Shuangyuanfeng, Mt. Xinglong (40 ° 36 ′ N, 117 ° 29 ′ E), Hebei Province, 800 m, 17.vii. 2011, coll. Houhun Li & Yanpeng Cai; 2 ♂♂, 1 ♀, Mt. Baiyun (34 °08′ N, 112 °05′ E), Henan Province, 1580 m, 24−25.vii. 2002, coll. Xinpu Wang; 1 ♂, Huinan County (42 ° 42 ′ N, 126 ° 16 ′ E), Jilin Province, 11.vii. 1991; 1 ♀, Laotudingzi, Huanren County (41 ° 15 ′ N, 125 ° 21 ′ E), Liaoning Province, 8−9.viii. 2009, coll. Weichun Li & Jiayu Liu.

Distribution. China (Hebei, Henan, Jilin, Liaoning), Japan, Korea, Russia.

Diagnosis. This species is characterized by the forewing having a broad black dorsal band and with a dark brown strip at end of the cell ( Fig. 6View FIGURES 4 – 11), the cornuti consisting of two long thorns in the male genitalia ( Fig. 107View FIGURES 105 – 110), and the ductus bursae granulous throughout and the signum trapezoid posteriorly in the female genitalia ( Fig. 157View FIGURES 153 – 157). Ypsolopha amoenella  is similar to Y. scabrella (Linnaeus)  in the female genitalia, but differs in the signum trapezoid posteriorly, which is triangular posteriorly in the latter species. Ypsolopha amoenella  is also similar to Y. japonica Moriuti  in genitalia, and the differences between them are stated in detail under the latter species.
