In a SharePoint 2013 Farm I have a patch level at 15.0.4701.1000 but when I search for this cumulative update I cannot find an exact matching number - closest I can find is 15.0.4701.1001 (note the 1001) & this seems to be from March 2015.

Where do I find the cumulative update corresponding to 15.0.4701.1000?

Reason is that I'm trying to build an environment that is patched exactly to the same level for testing purposes.

Don't trust the Version number from the central admin, because that is configuration Database Version.

better way to look for the patch, go to Central admin > Upgrade & Migration > Check product and patch installation status if the March CU's KB number listed here then simply download the March CU and apply it to the server.

*Specificly for March CU, KB listed 1001 but actually it is 1000.

Check these blogs to understand it.

Common question: why does the version number on the "Servers in Farm" page not change after installing October CU?
