Diagnosis. This species is similar to Y. strigosa (Butler)  in facies and in the male genitalia, but differs in the forewing having a well-defined sword-shaped snow white streak extending from base to middle of the wing ( Fig. 34View FIGURES 33 – 39), the cornuti composed of two rows of small thorns and 1 / 3 length of the phallus in the male genitalia ( Fig. 134View FIGURES 129 – 134). In Y. strigosa (Butler)  , the ill-defined streak on the forewing is yellowish white, extending from the base to the apex ( Fig. 35View FIGURES 33 – 39), the male cornuti are composed of two rows of microspines and 1 / 2 length of the phallus ( Fig. 135View FIGURES 135 – 140). The female genitalia of this species are characterized by having a long sack-shaped corpus bursae ( Fig. 180View FIGURES 176 – 181).
