Cna you help identify my Loach? *PIC*

I was sent here by a fellow loach lover in hopes that you could help me identify this little guy. I have three of them, and can't figure out if they are B. Helodes, B. hymenophysa, or B. berdmorei. The possibility they are B. beautiforia or B. beauforti has also come up.

Anyway, they are only ~1 1/2" long, green tinted, have red/orange on the Dorsal and yellow on the ventral/pelvic and the anal fins. They are striped, but also have spotting like the helodes, but the black spot on the dorsal, like the hymenophysa????

Anyone as confused as me? :)

Any help would be appreciated, I would just like to know what I have. TIA
