Host plants: Betula  spp., Alnus glutinosa (Linn.) Gaertn.  ( Betulaceae  ) ( Agassiz 1996).

Distribution. China (Beijing, Gansu, Hebei, Heilongjiang, Henan, Inner Mongolia, Jilin, Liaoning, Ningxia, Qinghai, Shaanxi, Shanxi, Sichuan, Tianjin, Yunnan, Xinjiang, Xizang), Europe, Russia, Japan, Korea.

Diagnosis. This species is most similar to A. (A.) goedartella (Linnaeus, 1758)  . In the male genitalia of A. (A.) brockeella  the valva are widest in the distal 2/9, and the saccus is nearly uniform in width and rounded apically ( Fig. 122View FIGURES 120 – 125). In A. (A.) goedartella  the valva is widest at the base, and the saccus is narrowed distally to a narrowly rounded apex ( Agassiz 1996: 79, Pl. 10, fig. 13). The variation in forewing pattern of A. (A.) brockeella  and A. (A.) goedartella  are also similar, but the two species can be separated by the abovementioned genital features.

Remarks. The forewing color and patterns of both A. (A.) brockeella  and A. (A.) goedartella  vary within populations; both pale and dark forms occur in both species ( Agassiz 1996). Variation in forewing pattern for A. (A.) brockeella  is newly described here.
