Jain Biology: Water-Bodied Organisms:

While dealing with water-bodied organisms, again, there is no significant difference between the two scriptures, except that many more types of water are named in Prajñāpanā Sūtra —cold, hot, saltish water, sea water (names of some seas are also given). As before the varieties caused by the colour etc. are stated to be again 700,000.

The same applies to the treatment of Fire-bodied as well as Air-bodied organisms. In every case, we have many more types mentioned by name but the basic classification is identical in both scriptures.
