Ordered Congensis, did I get Hastifolia?

Hey guys, I just received an order from live aquaria. I ordered an ozelot sword (got 2, very pleased!) and an Anubias congensis.

But upon opening I saw this leaf

Which looks to me like Hastifolia.

But also, on the same plant I saw a leave or two that looks like Congensis

So which is this plant? Hastifolia or Congensis? Neither?

Ive read that Hastifolia will die if submerged. So if it's Hastifolia I intend to ask for a new plant but I wanted some opinions from you guys.

Thanks in advance!

Having done further research it seems I was reading an incorrect article when I found that Hastifolia dies submerged.

That said, I contacted LiveAquaria and explained the problem and they refunded me for the Congensis.

So, all is well! I suppose I'll just grow Hastifolia instead lol.
