Diagnosis. Adult ( Fig. 12 View Figure ) wingspan 24.0–31.0 mm. This species is diagnostic in the male genitalia by the gnathos with an arched median process lacking setae ( Fig. 21 View Figure ), and in the female genitalia by the ductus bursae with a large sclerotized basal plate that is widened medially, U shaped posteriorly, inverted triangular anteriorly, and a pair of equally sized signa ( Fig. 27 View Figure ). Termioptycha margarita  is similar to T. albifurcalis  in the forewing pattern, and the differences between the two species are stated under the proceeding species.

Distribution. China (Anhui, Beijing, Chongqing, Fujian, Guangdong, Guangxi, Guizhou, Hainan, Hebei, Henan, Hubei, Hunan, Jiangxi, Shaanxi, Shanxi, Sichuan, Taiwan, Tianjin, Yunnan, Zhejiang); Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Sikkim, Bhutan, Russia.
