Distribution. Russia (S Ural). Outside Europe known from Southern Siberia (e.g., Altai, Novosibirsk, Minussinsk) ( Park & Ponomarenko 1996).

Remarks. This species is new to Europe. A single, freshly emerged specimen observed in late September represents the second generation. The external appearance of the adult is illustrated here for the first time. The forewing pattern is somewhat variable. Some specimens are rather distinctly mottled with black. Occasionally the spots can be indistinct, and such specimens are easily confused with A. spartiella   . However, A. sibirica   is smaller and its forewings are less elongated than those of A. spartiella   . A. sibirica   is widely distributed in various kinds of steppes in eastern and southern parts of the Urals.
