Diagnosis. This species is quite similar to Y. sarmaticella (Rebel)   in the forewing having two parallel stripes, but differs from it in the yellowish brown thorax ( Fig. 12 View FIGURES 12 – 18 ), the separated R 4 and R 5 in the forewing ( Fig. 63 View FIGURES 61 – 65 a ), the slender phallus about 1.6 times length of the valva in the male genitalia ( Fig. 112 View FIGURES 111 – 116 ), and the ductus bursae twisted near the corpus bursae in the female genitalia ( Fig. 162 View FIGURES 158 – 163 ); in Y. sarmaticella (Rebel)   , the thorax is yellowish white ( Fig. 13 View FIGURES 12 – 18 ), R 4 and R 5 of the forewing are short stalked ( Fig. 63 View FIGURES 61 – 65 a ), the male phallus is nearly as long as the valva ( Fig. 113 View FIGURES 111 – 116 ), and the female ductus bursae is straight ( Fig. 163 View FIGURES 158 – 163 ). Ypsolopha parallela   is also similar to Y. acerella Ponomarenko, Sohn et Zinchenko   in the male genitalia, but can be distinguished by the short coecum about 1 / 5 length and the cornuti about 1 / 3 lengh of the phallus; in Y. acerella   , the coecum is about 1 / 3 length and the cornuti are about 1 / 2 lengh of the phallus ( Fig. 119 View FIGURES 117 – 122 ).
