    Yellow Mammay - Yellow Mammey - Yellow Mamie - are all the same, however, as I've been told, the proper name is "Golden Mammay".

    I have Pink Curly Boy, but have never seen a Yellow Curly Boy. The difference between Curly Boy and Mammay is that Curly Boy has much longer leaves and does not sport Pappy.

    Yellow Excurrens has much larger and flatter leavers than Mammay.

    Picture #1 is Golden Mammay
    Picture #2 and #3 are Curly Boy
    Picture #4 is Yellow Excurrens

    One other characteristic of Golden Mammay is a red color to the underside of the leaf. Yellow Excurrens sometimes gets a light bronze color, but nothing like Golden Mammay.
