    In this paper we define a stochastic bisimulation concept for a very general class of stochastic hybrid systems, which subsumes most classes of stochastic hybrid systems. The definition of this bisimulation builds on the concept of zigzag morphism defined for strong Markov processes. The main result is that this stochastic bisimulation is indeed an equivalence relation. The secondary result is that this bisimulation relation for the stochastic hybrid system models used in this paper implies the same kind of bisimulation for their continuous parts and respectively for their jumping structures.
