Are you sure that's the same?

Comparing the images, the one from Robodyn has exchanged positions of the crystal and reset switch, as well as circuits on the backside which the Black Pill wiki page says should be empty.

I know from other circuits that Robodyn seems to do their own PCB layout, or at least does not do regular cloning of popular layouts. For example they're the only ones I've found on AliExpress which has a SHT1x module with cutout around the sensor as suggested by the datasheet.

Don't want to be all annoying like, it's not very important, was just curious :)

Might pick up a couple, as I planned on picking up some other stuff from Robody anyway.

These boards seem to evolve all the time, and there are clones of various boards.

e.g. The blue pill now has a much more robust micro usb connector.
There is also a clone or variant of the blue pill with only 1 jump link ( on boot0)

Perhaps the Black Pill has evolved

Gotcha. Think I'll pick some up and then we can see what's what :)

Ok..

I cant keep uo with the number of STM32 boards that are available. ;-)
I suspect there are hundreds of different types available, all different shapes and sizes.

Totally understand! :)

Just used to Arduino where the clones seem to be a bit closer to the "reference" implementation. No matter, order has been placed, time will tell what I end up with :D
