Eka Pada Sirsasana

After writing about Eka Pada Sirsasana not long ago (the Headstand variation where one leg is extended up to the ceiling and the other straight leg lowers to the floor) I googled it to find an image.
All that came up were images of a seated pose where the yogis had one leg extended along the floor and the other leg bent with the ankle wedged behind their head (I used to do this one in Mysore classes as a prep pose before Supta Kurmasana, but it is a second series pose in Ashtanga).
Tonight I consulted Light on Yoga and yes, both poses have exactly the same name and the same translation: one, leg, head, pose!
