ludwigia sp. red vs mini super red

Are these the same plant? If not, could someone clue me in as to the differences between the two? Thanks.

Hi veryzer,

A very good question however unfortunately it almost impossible to answer; that is why scientific names are the best way to describe plant species.

Here's one spot. It would seem to be a German creation. You'll get quite a few hits if you google it. I think it might be "mini" because of the smaller leaves, not plant height, which is a similar description of sp. red, right?
