Yes, one encounters both the two variants you have described. But the one depicted in Siebmacher & also Riestap seems to be the most common. Both describe the arms borne by an old family from Lauterbach in the Grand Duchy of Hesse. Lauterbach is a few miles NW of Fulda, and was once held by that great cloister.

Stengel mit gr. Blättern. – D.: b., s.
