Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-12; Anal soft rays: 27 - 29. Distinguished from Betta burdigala in the following characters: presence of lateral iridescent blotch in males (vs. absence); black pelvic fin tip (vs. white); fewer dorsal fin rays (9-12 vs. 14-15); fewer subdorsal scales (7-8 vs. 11-11 1/2); more anal fin rays (27-29 vs. 24-26); more predorsal scales (18-21 vs. 15-16); greater total length (132.7-138.5% SL vs. 131.0-132.3% SL); smaller postorbital length (14.3-15.5% SL vs. 16.7-17.4); smaller dorsal fin base length (15.2-20.4% SL vs. 26.8-28.6). Can be differentiated from Betta miniopinna in the following characters: body red in color (vs. black); presence of lateral iridescent blotch in males (vs. absence); black pelvic fin tip (vs. white); presence of iridescent green spots on median fins (vs. absence); greater postorbital length (14.3-15.5% SL vs. 12.3-13.3); and smaller pelvic fin length (7.8-8.8% SL vs. 8.7-12.0) (Ref. 56386).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01122 (0.00514 - 0.02450), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
