Name for stripe-on-back pattern?

Hi, all. I have to apologize for the quality of this picture--this girl is one of my more active ones! She is mostly silver, but has a few darker scales and then a darker stripe all the way down her back. I was wondering if this pattern has a name.

I'll try to get a better pic, too, though this one should at least give you an idea. :)

Isn't this just the dragon mask?

I don't know. I've googled "dragon mask" and "dragon stripe" and "stripe on betta back" and so on and haven't come up with an answer.

Sigh. The little wiggle-girl moves around under the frogbit too much, but here's a better picture of at least a portion of her back. :)

She has red fins, so maybe it's just the color of her fins spreading onto her back?

I know this thread is 4 days old now, but that's just a dragon pattern. It's not on all dragons. I think the dragon scales just stop where the white stops. Dragons described as full masks are the ones where the dragon scales cover their whole face and they don't have that stripe.

I have heard the stripe described as a "skunk stripe" but it's just something that a lot of dragons have, I'm not sure there's a specific name for it. If you search dragon scale on google you might find a lot of them. I personally LOVE the look of those stripes :)
