Lampronia morosa Zeller, 1852 is distinctly darker than L. standfussiella and has a distinct yellowish-white spot at the inner margin near the tornus. Even darker is Lampronia aeripennella (Tengström, 1848). The latter also has a yellowish vestiture of hair-like scales on the head, whereas in L. standfussiella it is grey.
