Ypsolopha japonica Moriuti, 1964 

( Figs 5View FIGURES 4 – 11, 56View FIGURES 55 – 60, 106View FIGURES 105 – 110, 156View FIGURES 153 – 157)

Ypsolophus japonicus Moriuti, 1964: 199  ; 1977, Moriuti: 80; Moriuti, 1982: 209; Byun & Bae, 2001: 156. Ypsolopha japonica Moriuti  : Zinchenko & Ponomarenko, 2008: 58; Sohn et al., 2010: 32. Type locality: Japan (Honsyû).

Description. Adult ( Fig. 5View FIGURES 4 – 11): Wing expanse 24.0−25.0 mm. Forewing with R 4 and R 5 separated ( Fig. 56View FIGURES 55 – 60).

Male genitalia ( Fig. 106View FIGURES 105 – 110): Uncus inconspicuous. Socius slender, dilated before apex, ending in point. Ventral plate of gnathos broadly tongue-shaped. Valva relatively slender, narrowed at base, arched along dorsal margin. Saccus 4 / 5 length of socius, dilated before apex. Anellus with width about 1 / 3 length of phallus, extremely broad and densely hairy on distal half. Phallus somewhat broad, slightly longer than valva, dilated at inception of ductus ejacuiatorius; coecum a quarter length of phallus; cornuti about half length of phallus, composed of two rows of microspines, each row with two or three larger thorns at apex.

Material examined. 1 ♂, 2 ♀♀, Neixiang County (33 °02′ N, 113 ° 50 ′ E), Henan Province, 1350 m, 14−15.vii. 1998, coll. Houhun Li; 1 ♀, Laotudingzi, Huanren County (41 ° 15 ′ N, 125 ° 21 ′ E), Liaoning Province, 8−9.viii. 2009, coll. Weichun Li & Jiayu Liu.

Distribution. China (Gansu, Henan, Liaoning, Shanghai), Japan, Korea, Russia.

Diagnosis. This species is similar to Y. amoenella (Christoph)  externally and internally, but can be distinguished by the separation of R 4 and R 5 in the forewing ( Fig. 56View FIGURES 55 – 60), the specific cornuti composed of two rows of microspines that are about half length of the phallus in the male genitalia ( Fig. 106View FIGURES 105 – 110), and the intersegmental membrane between the papilla analis and the 8 th abdominal segment longer than the abdomen in the female genitalia ( Fig. 156View FIGURES 153 – 157). In Y. amoenella (Christoph)  , R 4 and R 5 of the forewing are stalked ( Fig. 57View FIGURES 55 – 60), the male cornuti consist of two long thorns that are about 4 / 5 length of the phallus ( Fig. 107View FIGURES 105 – 110), and the female intersegmental membrane between the papilla analis and the 8 th abdominal segment is just 3 / 5 length of the abdomen ( Fig. 157View FIGURES 153 – 157).

Remarks. Byun & Bae (2001) recorded one male specimen from Gwangleung, Korea, but did not provide the structure of male genitalia. The male genitalia are described for the first time in this paper.
