Ecuador's first fighter: Curtiss-Wright CW-21, or CW-22, or P-35A?

There seems to be a great deal of confusion as to what type and how many US Lend-Lease fighters were received by Ecuador in WWII.

Below are some of the options drawn from a variety of more or less reputable sources on and off the internet:

1) 10 x Curtiss-Wright CW-21.
2) 6 x Curtiss-Wright CW-22 Falcon.
3) 4 x Seversky “P-35-type” conversions from civilian racers.
4) 6 x Seversky P-35A.
5) 12 x Seversky P-35A.

Can anyone definitvely disentangle this confusion?

Many thanks,
