Use the contains function of the list.  Something like:
myObjectsList.Where (mol ->  myListOfIds.Contains(mol.Id) )

Depends on what you mean by "match". Two lists will only match, by default, if their corresponding references match. If you need to check on a particular property, then you might need to involve some lamdas at some point.

Can you clarify your matching criteria?
