The difference is that the 350 Lund-indexed journals are all
peer-reviewed whereas the much bigger Regensburg index includes
many non-peer-reviewed journals, magazines and newsletter:

The Lund index is not yet complete, but 340 is far closer to the
current number of peer-reviewed journals than the Regensburg figure.
