can you name this variety?

Billerica, MA(Zone 6a)

Am trying to find the botanical name of a common variety pepper sold in markets as "long hot pepper". They are green, at least at the market, and approx 6" long and 1/2" wide. They are kind of wrinkled and tend to curve in a C shape. Don't have a pic but will purchase one (package) and post as soon as I do. I thought since they seem to be so common, somebody out there knows the ones I'm describing. My wife cooks with them all the time (love 'em), and very curious which variety they are. My wife is asian but she says they are a Mexican pepper? Couldn't find a match in PF.

Got a couple of pics of the internet, both show different names. The first one is called Basque Fryer (a.k.a. Piment d’Anglet, Doux Long des Landes).

They look like Long Thin Cayenne which is an open pollinated type that's commonly available..
