Are they identified in the Orthodox tradition? Eusebios quotes Papias and interprets him as distinguishing the two, but to my knowledge, that is the first distinction we have recorded.

I believe the late 3rd/early 4th century is also the earliest mention of the two being different. It's never been the consensus of the Church to separate John the Elder from John the Apostle; they are the same. The second and third letters of John, which are the two sometimes disputed, are read in the Lectionary and always attributed to John the Apostle, just as Hebrews is always attributed to Paul, despite some similar debate over authorship.
