    Hi belly_ttt,

    The two words that you ask about, similarity and similitude are synonyms. And though each may be used interchangeably with the other, similitude, is less often used.

    The above entries are taken from The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language (Fourth Edition).You may also want to take a look at the SYNONYMS paragraph within entry for likeness.
