Many botanists treat it as a variety of Bald Cypress, Taxodium distichum (as T. distichum var. imbricarium ) rather than as a distinct species, but it differs in ecology , occurring mainly in still blackwater rivers , ponds and swamps without silt-rich flood deposits. Compared to T. distichum , the leaves are shorter (3-10 mm long), slenderer and are on shoots that tend to be erect rather than spreading, the cones also tend to be smaller, not over 2.5 cm diameter. The bark is also a paler gray color.
