Identify these Cory?

I just bought them today, on the tank it said wild caught julii cory (im not sure if I believe it since im in Glasgow Scotland and they are from South America?) but I see there are ones called false julii's and just wondering what people think.

Thanks guys, was just wondering as I like to know exactly what they are just so I can add more. When I was googling I found out there are a lot of different types of cory that are hard to tell apart especially ones that look like this and they prefer to be kept with their own kind.



I had been wanting corys for a while and went out yesterday and planned to get 4 really but didnt know what type to get and was going to just get whatever ones I liked at the time. I went to 3 different stores, one only had albino and the other two had a couple of different types but I really liked these ones as they didnt leave each others side and seemed a nice pair even though there was only two of them .

They look nice and might be good pals already. They know their types and stick together. Great idea to get a few more.

False Julii

I can't ever see pics well in fine detail, but they look similar. You will be able to tell the differences.

Julii has more of dots even though they are somewhat elongated at the head. The False Julii / C. trilineatus has more lines
And then there is this one which looks nearly the same!!! Did you see where the Cory was supposedly caught from, could you ask if the shop keepers know?
This one is Venezuela.

Honestly if you start looking, there a great many which look VERY similar.
