Euxoa servitus is very similar and its range largely overlaps the range of redimicula. However, servitus tends to fly a bit earlier in more mesic habitats and its forewing markings are not as sharply defined. (1)
Euxoa auripennis is also very similar and overlaps the range of redimicula in the northern Great Plains. However, the forewing of auripennis has even rather than streaked inner margin of the dark terminal area and has a toothed rather than wavy outer margin of the PM line. (1)
