    I have a minilop/ lion head cross (Charlie), who is quite small. Autumn is a standard lop who is slighly bigger. I was offered an English Lop, but she was huge, at least 19 inches in length, with 19inch lop ears.

    Sorry I can't be more help, you know which is the right bun for you

    You could tell between the small and the medium lops, but I don't think you could tell between mini lop and dwarf as they are similar. Look at their weight at the moment. A small weight (like 1kg) will be a small lop, over 1-2kg would be a medium lop. Look at their ears, are they long or short.

    I breed dwarf lops. Dwarf lops are slightly bigger than mini lops at that age and have a slightly broader head. hope this helps.
