Ancylomenes tosaensis or Ancylomenes sarasvati, what are the diagnostic differences between these two species?

Shouldn't it be playing on a Vina then?

Up until now I thought it was Ancylomenes tosaensis, but I've seen similar shrimps identified as Ancylomenes sarasvati, so now I'm confused.
Hence my question, how do you tell the difference between these two similar species?

I dont know the initial name you mention, I've always recognised the one you show as the sarasvati, from the book you mentioned on another thread that I think I initially got it from
