"This taxon has been mistaken for Zeuxine gracilis but may be distinguished from it by the shape of the column and placement of the stigma lobes. It is also closely related to Z. exilis but again differs from that in the profile of the column (gently curved dorsally in basal half vs. abruptly raised from the base), and the obliquely angled down (vs. horizontal) rostellum brachia."
