The bigiceriate and holoic genus Diplocardia, distributed from USA to northeast Mexico, is characterized by two nearly fused gizzards in segments 5 and 6, tubular prostates open in segments 18 and 20 or backwards, intestine starting in or after segment 17 and a membranous nature of septum 5/6 (Fragoso & Duran 2014, Fragoso & Rojas 2016).
The new species shares some morphological features that relate it with both Diplocardia and Protozapotecia.

Before being tempted to speculate on their biogeographical origin (dispersal vs vicariance), what we can state without any doubt is that the new Protozapotecia species are more closely related to the North American Diplocardia and north Mexican Protozapotecia than to any other acanthodriline worm of southern Mexico or elsewhere.
