There is a photo of a *H. coccineus* seedling on the wiki by Angelo

I have also just posted a photo of my *H. barkerae* seedlings. It did not
come from the same batch as your seeds but it's better than nothing.…

The difference I see is that *H. coccineus* is pubescent and *H.
barkerae*is not. Also
*H. coccineus* has more spotting. Hope that helps.
