Cosmopterix clemensella
Kyhl - please check again if possible. I know little about genitalia but it does look more like clemensella to me and wing pattern seems a better fit. Antennae are described by Hodges as being variable and this seems to be within what is described.

I recently dissected this moth and have added the image to the page. Looks like it may be C. clemensella rather than gemmiferella.
