Growing Buttercup Squash

I planted two buttercup squash plants. They are now huge and there is an 8" to 10" green squash growing. Is this a summer squash or a winter squash? I have also planted butternut squash which I always have. I know this is a winter squash and when ripe has a light brown/tan outer skin.

Both squash varieties are a winter squash. They both should be picked when the vine starts to die back. Once cut off the vine they should be cured before storing.
