Default Stenosarcos or Stenorrhynchos?

So...

Iíd decided that I wanted Stenosarcos Vanguard ĎFireballí or Stenorrhynchos speciosum to fill a particular niche. Vender choice was limited. I was leaning towards the Stenorrhynchos but the plant pictured on the vendorís website that had it in stock didnít have very attractive leaves. The other vendor had both species pictured (very nice looking Stenorrynchos) but only the Stenosarcos was in stock. I ended up ordering the Stenosarcos.

I got my plant, itís awesome, itís labeled Stenosarcos Vanguard ĎFireballí. But, it looks like the really nice out of stock Stenorrhynchos speciosum?!? Thoughts?

I can take better pictures tomorrow if these arenít enough to go on.

I believe it's mislabeled. That's not Vanguard.[COLOR="Silver"]

It does look more like Stenorrhynchos speciosum (which is also quite variable - on mine the leaves are darker and the spots less dramatic) Great catch! Enjoy!

Thanks Dolly & Roberta! I was thinking the vendor photo didnít represent the Vanguardís color very well and that the Vanguard ĎFireballí and S. speciosum werenít that different after all. Then, I saw Dollyís plant...

I contacted the vendor for confirmation because I would like to label it properly. They had a few Vanguard ĎFireballí in stock when I ordered but have since sold out. I wonder if they were all actually S. speciosum?
