I know that this is just an example, but be aware that symbol names are
not allowed to contain underscores in Mathematica.

Sort by z values, and then use Split.

data = RandomReal[1, {20, 3}];

Split[SortBy[data, Last],
Quotient[Last[#1], .1] == Quotient[Last[#2], .1] &]

Here I consider two z values the same if they fall into the same
interval when dividing the real lines into intervals of length 0.1.  You
probably need a different "sameness" condition (possibly just plain
equality).
