I think you have, but unfortunately also "LX" does not help.
either read the M5xx number of the back of the arms or take some pictures or both :-)
There are various LX models.
they're probably FC-M563 and will use a 107mm bottom bracket for perfection, you could use a 113 if you don't mind the slightly wider chainline.
