Lavender Orpington vs. Lavender Australorp???

Is there even such a thing as a Lavender Australorp?

I have not found any breeders of this type of chicken, but I am seeing an awful lot of Lavender Orpingtons that have the more upright carriage of the Australorp, tail angle of the Australorp, and a head that favors Australorp more than it does Orpington. So I am curious whether many of the "Lavender Orpingtons" I am seeing are really an Australorp but are called Orpingtons. Can anyone tell me if this is so?
