Enemion hallii differs from all other North American members of the genus in having well-defined cymose inflorescences. Its closest ally is thought to be the east-Asian species E . raddeanum Regel, from which it differs in having long-petiolate leaves and cymose inflorescences with bracteolate subumbels. Enemion raddeanum is characterized by sessile or short-petiolate leaves and simple, umbellate inflorescences.
