Sids vs nigros *PIC*

I've had my 'Sids' for a few weeks now. I really believe they are Nigros. They were ordered to the LFS as Sids. Looking at the article 'Botia sidthimunkis vs Botia cf. nigrolineatas' I would say I definitely have Nigros. But the last 2 pictures on the species page under Sids (the two by Ken Childs- see picture below) look exactly like mine. Is the species index messed up? How can I tell for sure? They are funny little loaches. I have 4 and they roam the tank in a pack, unlike the clowns and yoyos. Anyone know the 'common name' for the Nigros? I would assume something like 'Black line loach'.
