Tinea falcella Denis et Schiffermüller, 1775: 136  .

Cerostoma unicolor  ab. of falcella Weber, 1936: 668  .

Ypsolopha falcella ( Hübner, 1793)  : Beccaloni et al. 2003 [accessed 9 January 2012]; Gershenson & Kozhevnikova, 2013: 103. Type locality: Switzerland.

Adult ( Fig. 46View FIGURES 40 – 47): Wing expanse 17.0 mm. Forewing with CuA 1 and CuA 2 almost connate ( Fig. 95View FIGURES 92 – 97).

Material examined. 38 ♂♂, 32 ♀♀, Qianshan (40 ° 17 ′ N, 122 ° 40 ′ E), Anshan, Liaoning Province, 5- 9.vii. 2010, coll. Jiayu Liu & Yanpeng Cai; 3 ♂♂, Mt. Baiyun, Song County (34 °08′ N, 112 °05′ E), Henan Province, 1560 m, 23.vii. 2001, coll. Dandan Zhang; 1 ♂, 2 ♀♀, Neixiang County (33 °02′ N, 113 ° 50 ′ E), Henan Province, 1200 m, 13.viii. 2006, coll. Hui Zhen & Denghui Kuang; 6 ♂♂, 2 ♀♀, Mt. Baiyun, Song County (34 °08′ N, 112 °05′ E), Henan Province, 1400 m, 15.viii. 2008, coll. Houhun Li et al.

Host plants. Lonicera xylosteum Linn.  , L. carprifolium Linn. ( Gershenson & Kozhevnikova 2013)  .

Distribution. China (Henan, Liaoning), Russia, Central Europe.

Diagnosis. This species is allied to Y. triangula  sp. nov. in facies, but differs in the forewing having a short white stripe extending obliquely upward from beyond 2 / 3 of the fold to end of the cell ( Fig. 46View FIGURES 40 – 47), which is absent in the latter species. Ypsolopha falcella  is similar to Y. varidentella  sp. nov. in genitalia, but can be distinguished by the valva protruded dorsally at middle and the straight phallus in the male genitalia ( Fig. 146View FIGURES 141 – 146), and the signum 1 / 2 length of the corpus bursae and ridged at anterior 1 / 5 ( Fig. 190View FIGURES 188 – 193) in the female genitalia. In Y. varidentella  sp. nov., the valva is straight dorsally, the phallus is curved at middle in the male genitalia ( Fig. 143View FIGURES 141 – 146), and the signum is 2 / 5 length of the corpus bursae and ridged at anterior 1 / 3 in the female genitalia ( Fig. 188View FIGURES 188 – 193).

Remarks. This species is newly recorded for China.
