Pachyphytum oviferum vs. Graptopetalum amethystinum

I've been trying to figure this out and I keep coming across conflicting information. I originally thought the plants in the first 2 photos (1 in this post, then 2 more posts) were two different colors of Pachyphytum oviferum, and the third photo was Graptopetalum amethystinum. I see some people/nurseries label the plant in the second photo as Graptopetalum amethystinum; but then, what is the plant that is a similar shape (slightly longer leaves) but more purple, in the 3rd photo? When I see these, are they just hybrids of some sort? I'm thinking somebody on here can clarify this for me!

Flowers will tell all, but it looks like that last one definitely is, almost without a doubt, P. o.

If they are all P. oviferum, what does G. amethystinum look like?

I thought that G.a. has slightly 'pointed' leaves? (not completely round) - but may be wrong?

IME, G. a., aside from having completely different flowers from P. o., also grows in more of a rosette fashion, not as here-and-there-leaved as P. o. is (although I'm sure there's a pattern there, it's just more subtle than G. a. has).
