10Gbase-T vs 10Gbase-TX

        At 1 Gbit, 1000BaseT (4-pair UTP, Full duplex, IEEE 802.3ae) was supposedly different from 1000Base-TX (2 pair TIA/EIA 854), but at 10G, it seems that manufacturers are using 10Gbase-T and 10Gbase-TX interchangeably. Are they actually the same?  If one manufacturer specifies 10Gbase-T for an endpoint and you use a 10Gbase-TX SFP+ on the switch, is it actually compatible?  I cannot find an actual standard for 10Gbase-TX.
Thank you!
