It is shown that the equivalence of the underlying linear spectra does not imply similarity of the structure or stability of the nonlinear modes in the arrays, and a graph representation of PT-symmetric networks is used allowing for a simple illustration of linearly equivalent networks and indicating their possible experimental design.
