Fissidens Fontanus (Regular vs Mini)

Judging by the picture of the fissidens fronds, is the lower one mini fissidens? Is the top one regular fissidens fontanus? I have both growing on different patches for many months and they remain the same size on each patch.

Anyone know the scientific name for the mini? Or any specific name for it. I would like to by some so I can make sure it's the mini as OP posted.

That's an uncommon, difficult species from what I've seen here.
