Help with London System after 1.d4 c5

I don't play 1.d4

And as black I certainly don't play 1.d4 c5.

I honestly thought 1.d4 c5 was called the benoni tongue.png

It is actually called Old Benoni and if White doesn't play c4(and he has no reason to) it is called  Schmid Benoni(the usual move order of Schmid Benoni is 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 c5 3.d5). Without c4 it has have very few similarities with Modern Benoni. The positions are more modern defense or Pirc than Benoni positions.
