The Black-banded Carpet Moth, Antepirrhoe semiatrata is very similar, but is more greyish in coloration, the AM band has a tooth protruding into the median band, near the discal spot and the terminal line is composed of pairs of dots or dashes.
Both species may have either banded or melanic (mostly dark) forms.
