Yes there is bro. I can prove you wrong on wat you said just look up MAHACHAIENSIS. Real mahachais goes by that name real mahachais have spade tails and is emerald in color and has alot of lines at the caudal fin

Yeah it recently got recognised as a new species. Couple of articles came out about it in some science journal sites. I believe there is a thread about it somewhere on this site.

Find it sad to think there are probably more betta species out there in the wild that have yet to be recognised officially, but are already teetering on the brink of extinction/endangerment.

Shame the cost of development and progress is so high.

I don't think they update that page very often, which is probably why they have it listed as undescribed still.
