12/7/09 - Per Brian Scholtens: "...Phycitodes albatella is an extralimited taxon. It is a European moth. At one time (when the MONA list came out), we had our species as subspecies of this species, but Neunzig recognized ours as distinct species, so P. albatella should no longer be a NA name. All the eastern specimens should be reliquellus and all the western ones should be mucidellus."
