Ypsolopha albiramella ( Mann)  : Gershenson & Pavlíček, 2002: 128; Vives 2003: 102; Gershenson & Kozhevnikova, 2013: 97. Type locality: Russia.

Adult ( Fig. 28View FIGURES 26 – 32): Wing expanse 19.0 mm. Wing venation as illustrated ( Fig. 78View FIGURES 75 – 79).

Material examined. 2 ♂♂, Tacheng (46 ° 46 ′ N, 82 ° 59 ′ E), Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, 30.vii− 7.viii. 1990, coll. Jinfu Li.

Host plants. Abies grandis Douglas ex Forbes  , Ephedra foemina Forskk.  , E. distachya Linn.  , E. equisetina Bunge  , E. intermedia Schrenk ex Meyer  ( Zagulajev 1989; Nevo et al. 1999; Gershenson et al. 2002; Kozhevnikova 2004; Gershenson & Kozhevnikova 2013).

Distribution. China (Xinjiang), Russia, Iran, Israel, Turkmenistan, Asia Minor, South Europe.

Diagnosis. This species is characterized by the forewing having white strips along the veins and having a large dark brown patch at middle of the fold ( Fig. 28View FIGURES 26 – 32), and by the male genitalia with a bandlike uncus and the specific cornuti composed of two large thorns ( Fig. 128View FIGURES 123 – 128). Ypsolopha albiramella  resembles Y. cajaliella Vives, 2003  in the male uncus being a sclerotized band, but differs in the gnathos with a round ventral plate, which is broadly tongueshaped in the latter species ( Vives 2003: Fig. 21View FIGURES 19 – 25). In addition, Y. cajaliella Vives  is known only from its type locality, Spain.

Remarks. This species is recorded for the first time from China.
