Distribution. China (Gansu, Guizhou, Hebei, Heilongjiang, Henan, Inner Mongolia, Jilin, Liaoning, Sichuan, Tianjin, Xinjiang), Japan, Korea, Russia (Ussuri, Amur).

Diagnosis. This species is similar to Y. bisticta  sp. nov. in both facies and genitalia, but can be distinguished by the absence of the black dot at basal 1 / 5 below the fold on the forewing ( Figs 49View FIGURES 48 – 54 a-b), the relatively shorter saccus which is shorter than the socius and the stout phallus in the male genitalia ( Fig. 149View FIGURES 147 – 152), and the lamella postvaginalis with two basally intilted bands in the female genitalia ( Fig. 193View FIGURES 188 – 193). In Y. bisticta  sp. nov., the forewing has a black dot at basal 1 / 5 below the fold ( Fig. 52View FIGURES 48 – 54), the male saccus is as long as the socius, and the phallus is extremely slender ( Fig. 152View FIGURES 147 – 152), and the female lamella postvaginalis is V-shaped ( Fig. 196View FIGURES 194 – 197).

Remarks. This species varies in appearance. The ground colour of the forewing varies from pale yellow to ocherous yellow, the costa from ocherous yellow to dark gray, the cell and the area between the fold and the dorsum from white to yellow, and the strips along veins from white to pale yellow. In spite of the differences above, the black dot below middle of the fold and the genital characters are stable.
