I must be mistaken then. There is a similar fish called Imbellis?

Yep. Imbellis is closely related, but a different species. Siamorientalis is only a recently described species.

I never knew how many different types there were until cruising around on AB. Do the wild types come from the same area as the ones we know commonly?

Same general area, they all originated in Southeast Asia.

Some wilds come from Indonesia, some come from Thailand. I think the stiktos are from Cambodia and I think some species come from Malaysia. So not every species is from the same area. There can be some variation as well between the appearance of some species based on where they are caught.

Setsuna has a map , perhaps he can post it?
I can tell you for sure, the Mahachai comes from a very tiny place on this map and is now in danger of being filled in, Setsuna also posted a video of these being caught in a certain palm tree, very cool video indeed.
You can see the devastation where these palms are being cut down anyway, they seem to be somewhat hollow and it is amazing how the bettas get in there in the first place!

He just posted it to me on FB. The ones in Cambodia, that you mentioned..Stitkos? They are very rare right now, and in danger. It's sad but, I hope to keep breeding them pure so we can maybe preserve the species. I will ask him to post it, when I see him on FB tonight.
