English term or phrase: Cyrillic Serbian / Latin Serbian
I wonder how Serbian people would refer to the two written versions of the Serbian language:
- Serbian written with the Cyrillic alphabet and
- Serbian written with the Latin alphabet.

Would for instance "Cirilica srpski" and "Latina srpski" be correct?

I need short and concise names for these two language versions to use in a list of language names (endonyms) similar to the following:

Afrikaans
***Cyrillic Serbian***
***Latin Serbian***
Dansk
Deutsch
English (UK)
English (US)
Svenska

Thank you.

Explanation:
It would be best to use the respective alphabet in the name itself:

српски (ћирилица)
srpski (latinica)

The language names are not capitalized in Serbian, so you could use lower case here.
