for example Bdim and E7 are fingered exactly the same (same shape, same fret) in two different songs in Robin Nolan's Gypsy Gig Book.
Bdim : B D F Ab (1, ♭3, ♭5, ♭♭7)
E7 : B D E Ab (5, ♭7, 1, 3)

so how does the guy writing the chart know to write Bdim or E7 if they sound the same?? well the thing is ... 9 times out of 10 if someone writes a diminished chord on a chart they are being lazy or just plain wrong, it's almost always a substitution for some other chord.
