Cold How to tell difference

How does one tell the difference between, Musa 'Truly Tiny', Little Prince and Super Dwarf. I get confusing information on these types. As far as I know I have little prince, but it looks more like Super Dwarf.

Thank you Richard for those comparisons. It seems that I don't have 'Little Prince' then but Super Dwarf. As the plant itself is 2.5' tall or so. I had to divide it up this year as it had too many pups in the pot and was threatening to break it, besides being awfully heavy. I can't lift all that weight any more.

This was my pot of Banana plants before division and after. It looks ratty at the moment, but it'l look better come spring outside. I kept the other divisions and cut those down and put them on a shelf in the basement until I can plant them outside.
