Ypsolopha nigrofasciatus Yang, 1977: 105  .

Ypsolopha nigrofasciata Yang  : Sohn et al., 2010: 24, 34; Ponomarenko & Zinchenko, 2013: 31. Type locality: China (Hebei).

Redescription. Adult ( Fig. 37View FIGURES 33 – 39): Wing expanse 23.0 mm. Head white, brown around eyes. Antenna white, ringed with brown on each flagellomere. Labial palpus white except second segment yellowish brown on outer side; tuft of second segment rectangular, shorter than labial palpus; third segment much shorter than second, ascending. Thorax and tegula yellowish brown. Forewing with CuA 1 and CuA 2 connate ( Fig. 86View FIGURES 86 – 91); anterior 1 / 3 white, with scattered yellowish brown scales on basal half, posterior 1 / 3 pale brown, mixed with yellowish brown except white at base of dorsum; median 1 / 3 dark brown, forming a broad band darkened from base to apex; cilia yellowish brown, dark brown below apex. Hindwing pale grayish brown, darkened to brown toward apex; cilia yellowish white except yellowish brown on distal half of costa. Fore- and midlegs grayish brown on dorsal side, white on ventral side; hindleg yellow on outer side, white on inner side and tibia.

Male genitalia ( Fig. 137View FIGURES 135 – 140): Uncus triangular. Socius slender, narrowed to pointed apex. Ventral plate of gnathos broadly tongue-shaped. Valva ovate, protrudent before apex dorsally. Saccus about 2 / 3 length of socius, distal half broad, apex slightly pointed. Anellus less than 1 / 5 length of phallus, sparsely spinous on distal half. Phallus slightly longer than valva, curved at middle; coecum about 1 / 5 length of phallus; cornuti about 1 / 5 length of phallus, composed of two rows of microspines.

Type material. Holotype: ♂, China, Mt. Wuling (40 ° 36 ′ N, 117 ° 29 ′ E), Xinglong County, Hebei Province, 1700 m, 22.viii. 1973, coll. Jikun Yang, genitalia slide No. JQ08216 ( CAUAbout CAU) [examined].

Additional material. 3 ♂♂, Shuangyuanfeng, Mt. Wuling (40 ° 36 ′ N, 117 ° 29 ′ E), Xinglong County, Hebei Province, 800 m, 4.viii. 2011, coll. Qiang Gao.

Distribution. China (Hebei), Russia (Far East).

Diagnosis. This species can be separated from its congeners by the forewing with median 1 / 3 dark brown, forming a broad band ( Fig. 37View FIGURES 33 – 39). It is similar to Y. yasudai Moriuti  in the male genitalia, but differs in having a triangular uncus, which is subulate in the latter species.
