Phycitinae
Hi:

In looking at
American moths of the subfamily Phycitinae
By Carl Heinrich
United States National Museum Bulletin 207: 1-581, 1956,

I found that only two species covered in this publication have large spines on the side of the aedeagus, one of which is European. I believe this is probably Phycitodes mucidella, fig. 496 (shown as Rotruda mucidella in Heinrich), the North American species.
