If you read our profile of Corydoras aeneus and Brochis splendens, the differences are explained (how to easily tell them apart). It also mentions that both fish are frequently mis-named and confused in stores. "Common" names are just that--common to one store frankly. "Green cory" can refer to either fish--after all, both look like a "cory" as they are closely related genera.
As previous members have correctly stated, your pictured fish (on the right) is Corydoras aeneus. The left cory is C. paleatus.
