They are the same.  The flat side of an LED is the cathode and the stripe side of a silicon or germanium diode is also the cathode. In the photo you can see that both the flat side of the LED and the stripe side of the diode have the same orientation. This symbol is meant to show you have an option for either LEDs or another type of diode. (Hence the extra pad for fit)
