Crypt ID?

I'm hoping that this is an easy ID for some of the Crypt experts on here.

I bought a large Crypt wendtii 'bronze' and mixed in with it were a couple of these smaller Crypts. They look pretty similar to the wendtii, but the leaves aren't as "hammered" and wide as the wendtii. Also, the color on these is more of a green with a reddish outline on the leaves.

Thanks for the help!

Its c. wendtii most wendtiis of course have crinkled leaves but some like mine have reverted to have smooth leaves which are not hammered and crinkled. Sometimes it changes in different conditions.

Thanks! I had a feeling it was, but wanted to make sure.
