Mixed up drain plugs

I drained the oil from the engine and transmission of my '07 Patrol, and managed to mix up the two drain plugs. Can anyone tell which is for the engine and which is for the transmission? Photo attached. Thanks.

My photo of the two drain plugs doesn't appear to have posted in my original inquiry.

The one with the longer magnet may be an aftermarket unit. FWIW, on mine the transmission fill and rear end tend to pick up the most fuzz once everything was broken in.

I put a nitrile O ring on all my plugs - no leaks.
