Default connecting rod bearing confusing

I bought a set of rod bearing for b18c at parts shop, the sales ask me is it Type-R motor or not, because the b18c1 rod bearing is wider than the B18c5.

In my case. I bought a set b18c1 rod bearing but really not suitable for the rod. than i tell to the sales and he said i should use the type-r bearing.
But i am actually know the crankshaft is not the R version and P72 Stamped on the connecting,i know there are upper and lower bearing id code stamped on rod for the typr-r , and mine just one id code on the rod.

i am confusing that why i issued this problem? do i need to match different size for the upper and lower bearing?

GSR (B18C1) and ITR (B18C5) or their JDM equivalent all use the SAME rod bearings. The sales person is mistaken... the B16A and LS/CRV rod bearings are wider. What brand of bearings are you buying ???

It depends on the markings found on the block, crank and rods. Three brown and a green pair may work.
