Isn't Saunf called Fennel Foeniculum vulgare?

Anethum sowa is called Indian Dill and I think Shepu in Marathi

Saunf is Foeniculum vulgare, a plant may be confused but different from Anethum sowa.
 
It has fewer flowers, larger in size, lighter in colour, stems thicker, sheaths larger and fruits larger and broader, lighter in colour. I am uploading it separately.
