the fact sheets could tell you, but they're still down.

I know that one of the differences is supposed to be the eye color, red around the pupil is Spilo CF, white is Medenai.
Actually no on the S. medinai description. The species has yellow eyes and resembles P. cariba as juveniles to sub adult. As I stated in Piranha Science, highly unlikely you have S. medinai since it is found in remote localities and not exported, at least not yet to my knowledge.

oops, sorry...is there also a fin coloration difference of some kind also?

I live by the fact sheets on here, without them I'm lost, I have yet to find any books that seem to be anywhere near as good as they are.
