Default Confused as to which species

I got a new amphiuma. Ordered as baby two toed and it has all the typical characteristics of one; large head, two-toned coloration, and all that. The thing that confuses me is that while it looks like a two toed (which is what I wanted), it has two toes on each hind leg but appears to only have one toe on each front legs. It's very small so it's possible that I'm just not seeing the second toe. It also doesn't look like a pholeter as their head shape/size is usually an easy giveaway when compared to the other two species. I've got it in a temporary set up until I'm sure of what it is.
