If it's tetraploid, then depending on the organism's degree of heterozygosity, those may very well be the same transcript from different ploidies (which would not really be considered misassemblies)... or they could be two copies of the same gene with different genomic coordinates. I don't know that there's an easy way to tell. If possible, I'd try to inbreed the organism as much as possible before doing assemblies.
