Redescription. Adult ( Fig. 53 View FIGURES 48 – 54 ): Wing expanse 24.0−28.5 mm. Head rough, white to pale yellow; face white, brown around eyes. Antenna yellowish brown; scape white, with a grayish brown strip on dorsal surface; flagellum ringed with yellowish white. Labial palpus yellowish white, white on outer surface of second segment; tuft of second segment narrow triangular, with appressed scales; third segment extremely short, concealed in tuft of second segment. Thorax yellowish white, longitudinally with a median grayish brown strip. Tegula gray, longitudinally with a median yellowish white strip. Forewing with CuA 1 and CuA 2 stalked ( Fig. 102 View FIGURES 98 – 104 ); yellowish white, mixed with black scales on distal 1 / 3, dark gray at apex, pale gray above dorsum and tornus as well as along inside of termen, with yellowish brown strips along veins, with a black dot near base above dorsum; cell with two black dots at middle and one large triangular black patch at end; fold brown on basal half, with black dot below middle. Hindwing gray; cilia concolorous with wing, with a yellow basal line. Fore- and midlegs brown except yellowish white on femora, tibiae with a white strip on outer side; hindleg yellowish white, dark on tarsus, tibia with a brown strip on outer side.

Male genitalia ( Fig. 153 View FIGURES 153 – 157 ): Uncus inconspicuous. Socius tapering to pointed apex. Ventral plate of gnathos large ovate, densely spinous. Valva elongate ovate, concave on ventral margin near base. Saccus about 2 / 3 length of socius, slender, parallel-sided. Anellus about a quarter length of phallus, with distal half sparsely spinous. Phallus about 1.4 times length of valva, curved conspicuously at middle; coecum 2 / 5 length of phallus, narrow; cornuti composed of two rows of microspines, about 1 / 5 length of phallus.

Female genitalia ( Fig. 197 View FIGURES 194 – 197 ): Intersegmental membrane between papilla analis and 8 th abdominal segment about 1 / 2 length of abdomen. Apophyses posteriores about twice length of apophyses anteriores. Lamella postvaginalis V-shaped. Antrum slender, nearly parallel-sided. Ductus bursae slightly shorter than corpus bursae, dilated and sclerotized on anterior half, granulous near corpus bursae. Corpus bursae rounded; signum about 3 / 10 length of corpus bursae, ridged at anterior 1 / 3, anterior half semicircular, posterior half sharply narrowed.

Material examined. 1 ♂, Shuangyuanfeng, Mt. Xinglong (40 ° 36 ′ N, 117 ° 29 ′ E), Hebei Province, 800 m, 25.vii. 2011, coll. Houhun Li & Yanpeng Cai; 3 ♂♂, Mt. Li, Jincheng (35 ° 30 ′ N, 112 ° 51 ′ E), Shanxi Province, 1500 m, 17−19.viii. 2006, coll. Xu Zhang & Haiyan Bai; 1 ♀, Wolong (31 ° 29 ′ N, 103 ° 36 ′ E), Sichuan Province, 1900 m, 2004. viii. 8, coll. Yingdang Ren.

Distribution. China (Hebei, Shanxi, Sichuan).

Diagnosis. Ypsolopha diana   is characterized by having a long coecum that is 2 / 5 length of the phallus in the male genitalia ( Fig. 153 View FIGURES 153 – 157 ). It is similar to Y. nemorella (Linnaeus)   in facies, but differs in the forewing having a triangular black patch at end of the cell ( Fig. 53 View FIGURES 48 – 54 ), which is represented by a small black dot in the latter species.

Ypsolopha diana   is also similar to Y. strigosa (Butler)   in the female genitalia, but can be separated by the ductus bursae sclerotized on the anterior half and granulous near the corpus bursae ( Fig. 197 View FIGURES 194 – 197 ); while the ductus bursae is membranous throughout and granulous on the posterior 1 / 3 in Y. strigosa   ( Fig. 181 View FIGURES 176 – 181 ).

Remarks. The male and female genitalia of this species are described for the first time.
