Striata or Beauforti

I confused! (Again) I was just looking through one of my books "Hobbyist Guide to Catfish and Loaches", and saw a picture that looks remarkably like the fish I bought as striatas. It's identified as a beauforti. Can someone tell me the difference? In the pictures of the striatas on LOL, it appears that the stripes are more regular and even than this beauforti in the book. Is that an accurate assumtion or does it very? I hate not knowing for sure what I have.
