Crypt confusion

I order Crypt wendtii 'mi oya' from large plant company. They send wendtii 'red' and tell me it is the same plant. I am not sure this is correct. Are they one in the same or two different creatures?
Does ayone know where to get a reliable 'mi oya' if not equal to 'red'?

According to the Florida Aquatic Nurseries description, they are one in the same plant.
Cryptocoryne wendtii 'Mi Oya' is a very vigorous Cryptocoryne that will grow equally well as an aquarium plant or as a terrarium plant. Red wendtii Cryptocoryne as it is more commonly known is one of the most popular varieties of Cryptocorynes in the aquarium trade. A great plant for the beginner it will tolerate almost any condition from low to high light and does not need fertilizer or CO2. Cryptocoryne wendtii 'Mi Oya' will thrive under medium light and regular fertilizer applications.

This is the source all right. Distributor/Sales made it sound like two different plants. Pictures of each do look different but....
What I got is not this plant, that I do know.

You may have the emersed form. If so, then all the leaves will melt away when you put it in the tank and new leaves will grow in their place.

I've also found that crypts change colors based on their growing conditions such as ferts and lights.
