Specimens in fruit might be mistaken for small ones of Pterospora andromedea; besides lacking the clammy pubescence of that species, the style is 2.4–5 mm long, hirsute, and noticeable on the fruit. In Pterospora, the style is ca. 2 mm long or less, glabrous, and nearly or quite concealed by the expanding fruit. Neyland & Hennigan (2004) present clear evidence supporting the recognition of Hypopitys.
