Growing Coriander, also Cilantro, Chinese parsley

I had great success in 2019 with coriander in Adelaide. now mid of January I have 2 coriander plants ( already bolting) and they started giving me seeds. The STRANGE thing is both of them gave very weird looking seeds, the seeds look more like parsley seeds!! I am 100% sure they started as coriander so no chance I mixed the seeds up when planting. The other thing I should mention they grow very close to Parsely plants, so is it possible to be cross-pollinated? or is it a different variety of coriander? my plan is to harvest the seeds and plant them again and see what will grow! but I wish if someone can tell me what is going on.

I record what I plant - date, crop, variety, fertiliser I used etc. You could take the seeds to a nursery or try looking up on the net what different seeds look like. I purchased the thick stalked celery seedlings from Bunnings for 6 years and every time they grew into open heart, thin stalks, hollow inside, I believe they were Italian parsley. Have never grown them since. Maybe start with some new seeds.
