Coming back to what I started with, this region is described in 40th region whilst I found nothing on Pyrausta neocespitalis on the continent.

Vasily, the fact Synev doesn't mention that is not confusing, but there are a row of cons. By the way, P. porphyralis is mentioned in 38th region where is this pic from. :) Key to the insects of the Far East of the USSR describes Pyralis cespitalis Denis & Schiffermüller, 1775 in Primorye, European Yakutia, Zabaikalye, Middle Asia, Japan, Northeast China. This species name now serves as a P. despicata synonym. The Japanese website though doesn't mention any of these names whilst has Pyrausta neocespitalis Inoue, 1982 which fits one to one in appearance to our specimen
I'll try to check what's distributed in Kahabarovsk region and what's the areal of the new species. As I see, this is Japanese. :)

Alexandr, well P. porphyralis neither mentioned in 37th region (that's why I didn't move it right away). This is it Habitus fits. Synev can't be taken as an axiom considering these mismatches.

Hurried, seems new species Pyrausta neocespitalis in Russia as Pyrausta despicata isn't mentioned in 37th region.
