We study the local indistinguishability of mutually orthogonal product basis quantum states in the high-dimensional quantum system. In the quantum system of dd, where d is odd, Zhang et al have constructed d2 orthogonal product basis quantum states which are locally indistinguishable in [Phys. Rev. A. 90, 022313(2014)]. We find a subset contains with 6d 9 orthogonal product states which are still locally indistinguishable. Then we generalize our method to arbitrary bipartite quantum system mn. We present a small set with only 3(m + n) 9 orthogonal product states and prove these states are LOCC indistinguishable. Even though these 3(m + n) 9 product states are LOCC indistinguishable, they can be distinguished by separable measurements. This shows that separable operations are strictly stronger than the local operations and classical communication.
