help with ID: dwarf riccia vs regular riccia?

I bought this plant that seller ID'd as dwarf riccia, but after looking at various pictures, I'm not sure. What do you guys think? That is a centimeter ruler for comparison.

Can someone with a definite ID post a picture of what dwarf riccia is supposed to look like, preferably with a ruler or something for scale. There are so many conflicting pictures floating around it's hard to know what's correct.

I think I may have some dwarf riccia, each strand is about 2mm long before there is a new branch

do you mind posting a pic of what you have squirt? when i bought mine, they were similar to what you describe. however with my lower light conditions, the distance between branches has gotten longer. i think a lot of riccia id'd as dwarf may just be regular riccia grown in optimal conditions.

are there any other distinguishing characteristics other than more compact branching?
