Picked these two up at a LFS as "elegant cory"

reaserching them and they look nothing like them!

they have yellow fins and yellow on the face witch is hard to get in the pics.

Closest I have found is maybe cory nanus

Or is it corydoras napoensis?

Corydoras napoensis and bilineatus looks almost the same, to me, but are from different countries. Not sure how to tell the difference as both species were named as napoensis until a few years ago so photos on the web do not really help to fully ID the cory.

Napoensis is close as well..they seem to have the longer dorsal fin like mine have.....hmmm why must there be so many similar corys?!

The spot on the dorsal fin says it is neither corydoras napoensis, nor corydoras bilineatus. But which one it it, well........
