Diagnosis. This species is characterized by the forewing grayish white mixed with black and grayish whitetipped ocherous yellow scales on the distal 1 / 3 ( Fig. 8View FIGURES 4 – 11). Ypsolopha leuconotella  is similar to Y. flaviterminata  sp. nov. in the forewing markings, but can be distinguished by the different colour, and the presence of the dark brown dot at the tornus that is absent in the latter species. Ypsolopha leuconotella  is also similar to Y. yangi Ponomarenko et Sohn  in genitalia, but differs in the medially dilated socius in the male genitalia ( Fig. 108View FIGURES 105 – 110), and the entirely granulous ductus bursae in the female genitalia ( Fig. 159View FIGURES 158 – 163); in Y. yangi  , the male socius is parallel-sided on the basal 3 / 4 ( Fig. 120View FIGURES 117 – 122), and the female ductus bursae is sparsely granulous before the inception of the ductus seminalis ( Fig. 168View FIGURES 164 – 169).

Remarks. Sohn et al. (2010) reported this species as a new record to China. In fact, Caradja (1939) recorded it from Shanxi Province, China.
