Swammerdamia pyrella has strong coppery terminal cilia.

Paraswammerdamia nebulella has several clusters of white scales near the apex of the forewing (rather than distinct spot).     

Swammerdamia compunctella is larger, more evenly pale grey, with single large white spot near apex of the forewing. (No picture)
