New species belonging to the Splenden complex group

Hey guys today i just want to share a newly discovered wild type belonging to the splenden complex group to you guys. Some of you might know already some might not. This type is found in Eastern Thailand near Chonburi, Kabinburi and a few smaller town near there. When first found researchers say it was a wild hybrid of imbellis and splenden but they checked again because imbellis is not found in Thailand so many DNA test had been done and they found out that the wild fish they had found was not a hybrid of splendens and imbellis but a new speices. My thai friend (one of the researchers) told me that him and his friends(team) had killed hundreds of this wild type just to determined if this is a new species or not. Now i know many of you might say that its really cruel but it still had to be done and good thing its not you whos doing all the killing(hahahaha). The Scientific name for this betta is Siamorientalis. Many of my thai friends or the locals there call it Kabinburi and black imbellis. Why those names? Because the very first one was found in Kabinburi as for the name black imbellis, because this betta has everything that a imbellis has except for the emerald gill cover head on an imbellis instead it has an all black head so thats why locals call it black imbellis

Hope you guys enjoyed read this and learning of a new species to the splenden group sorry if some parts dont make sense to you guys without commas and quotations hahahaa but yea

I saw this a little while ago on SeriouslyFish or one of those other websites. It's pretty cool.

Makes you think of all those species of bettas that may have become extinct in the wild before anyone even knew they existed because of habitat destruction etc.

I was wondering if this was the 'special' pair you were talking about? I just didn't want to say anything in case it ruined it for you.

It's not hard to tell which complex is your favourite haha
