The main confusion species are C. betulella, in which the costal cilia are not tipped white, and C. ibipennella, which shares the white-tipped cilia of C. kuehnella, but which is normally smaller and has the base of the cilia blackish rather than grey (MBGBI Vol 3). Larva mines leaves of Oak, living within a movable pistol-case; case length 8 mm.
