IDing my betta

So this is just a quick question.

My betta Petrelli has a real distinct coloring. He is blue in the middle, which stops about halfway through his fins and then becomes white. I've seen more than one betta like this before and I was wondering if there is a name for this kind of coloration.

I couldn't figure out how to post a picture in the thread, but there's a picture of him on my profile.

That type of coloring is called a butterfly. Here's a sticky of colors and tail types on if you want to look at more pictures/learn more about the colorings.
