Default ID Truly Tiny pups vs Double Mahoi pups?

Well, now I've gone and done it. I confused the labels on these (actually they faded out), so now I'm guessing which is Truly Tiny and which is Double Mahoi. I went back and looked at the many pictures I took since I first started growing bananas in early 2017.

One banana plant produces pups with 'blood marks' on the leaves which mostly fade with age, and I suspect that it's DM. The other shows pups, but no leaf marks to speak of, and has a much thicker ps base. Could this be the TT?
I learned my lesson, and got a permanent label maker, ready to go! Any comments will be appreciated.
I'm not very high tech, but will try to upload a couple of pictures later if I can.

Thanks,
Rick in CT zone 6

sometimes the double will have a more fan-like arrangement of the leaves.
