Default Crystal 150 substitute?

I went to my LHBS to pick a couple things up and asked if they had C-150. The owner walked by the grains and tapped on the Special-B malt. Is this the same thing as crystal 150? Kinda like some malts are the same with different names?

It will be similar but it's not quite the same. It's probably the closest they have and it shouldn't make too much difference to the recipe if you use it.
I'm too lazy and have too many beers going to keep updating this!

Special B is C220L. Should work okay, but keep it under 1/2 lb for a 5 gallon batch.
