Two different types of Fissidens Fontanus?


I got both as Fissidens Fontanus. After 1 month turns out they grew differently in the same environment. Derived from this thread http://scapeclub.org/forum/showthrea...this-fissidens

Here's a picture of them. 2 on the left is Fissidens Fontanus, 2 on the right is unknown?
Help me ID the fissidens on the right please, I would like to buy more of these but I need a specific scientific name.

There's so many different fissidens species, I wish someone would write up a guide. I have the stuff on the right and I've always considered that to be "regular" fissidens, but some people sell it as mini. Then some places sell truly mini fissidens, which is TINY, like this:
