A difficult case. If it was Europe, it would be a representative of the genus Crassa, most likely unitella, but this genus does not exist in the Asian part of Russia. There is another similar species in Japan, Pedioxestis isomorpha Meyrick, 1932, but it is not found in Russia.
Three possible answers:
1. Invasion of the European species on the Russian Far East.
2. A new species for Russia Pedioxestis isomorpha Meyrick, 1932
3. I missed something from the Far East Seaside fauna. :) it's probably the most faithful option.
