In this note we explain, in terms of finite dimensional representations of Lie algebras \(\mathfrak {sp}_{2\ell }\subset \mathfrak {sl}_{2\ell }\), a combinatorial coincidence of difference conditions in two constructions of combinatorial bases for standard representations of symplectic affine Lie algebras.
