P15T8 versus F15T8?

For the life of me I can't find out what the difference is in these fluorescent bulbs, if there is any difference at all.

F15 is the common one but mine, of course, have P18 stamped on them.

Anyone know if there is a difference?
Thanks!

The F generally indicates fluorescent; p= plug type..
The 15 and 16 number should indicate watts or kevlar color range x 1,000. T8 is the style of end and tube dia. Could be a mislabel....
here is some info. that may help....

I'm going to have to pull a few more of these and see if they are all labeled "P".
They look like a standard fluorescent bulb.
