Anemone Type?

I was told this was a Ritteri when I bought it... Then I found a real Ritteri and suspect this isn't one. Any idea what type of Anemone it really is?

Looks like what is often referred to as a ritteri in the hobby (Heteractis magnifica), and a very stressed one at that. The way the mouth is gaping open, could be a sign of poor health, or a sign that it needs more waterflow. These anemones need LOTS of flow and LOTS of light.

The mouth opens and closes daily. Most of the time it's locked up tight. Just before the moonlights came on tonight, all the tentacles deflated and the mouth was open. It spued some gunk (du du) from the mouth. I haven't noticed the mouth closing up tight yet but it's only been an hour.

Are there different types of Ritteri? The other one I have is brilliantly green, with the familiar cap around the base that it closes up. (check my gallery or the anemone gallery for photo).

Thanks for the info!
