This is the main problem trying to convert recipes that use amber or dark extracts - it can be hard to find what the composition is unless you can get it from the manufacturer. Pale and light extracts are usually just the base malt (maybe a little carapils), while wheat extract is usually some combo of wheat plus pale malt. With the dark extract conversion you might have to do some guesswork based on color and general style for the recipe to figure out what to use in terms of specialty malts.
If your above recipe was just pale and wheat extract I was assuming no specialty malts, but I guess could depend on the specific extract you used.
