What kind of Loach is it?

Bought 4 loaches at LPS. Thought all were YoYos, but did not specify which ones they caught. Got home to find 2 juvi Yoyos, and 2 unknowns.
Unknowns are color of Botia Striata, have stripes like a yoyo, but ladder bars on every other set of stripes. Nervous, active little (one over 1" and one a little under 1") fish, I have been unable to photograph as they never stop moving. They are obviously Botia - but what type? Anyone?
