Pangio shelfordii? *PIC*

I managed to get a photo today of our new loaches that were described as Pangio shelfordii. They are a maximum size of 1.5" long and only a mm or two wide (very tiny!). These look a bit different to what I was expecting - I have seen pictures of adult specimens before and the colouration appears to be different. I am not sure if these are what the supplier claims they are, or if it is just a juvenile colouration. They were extremely difficult to take photos of - they only came in yesterday so they are still not all that settled and are rushing around the tank or hiding away where I can't get a decent shot. This was the only keeper out of 40 some
