WHAT is an egg spot?

This is the one thing that confuses me....
WHAT THE HECK IS AN EGGSPOT?
And is there something about an ovipositor that I'm hearing about female bettas?
I have a male so I've got no clue what all this is.

An "egg spot" is a tube where female bettas release eggs during spawning.

Its very clearly seen here as a white dot on the female, in front of the anal fin.

the egg spot is the ovipositor. Its the tube that extends out of the body for depositing eggs. Girls have it because it's the easiest way to get the eggs out of the body. I want to say wild fishies have them too (like trout and what not).
Boys have one when young because, well thats actually their...umm...butt, why it sticks out I don't know.

Young males have a similar looking spot for whatever reason. Personally I feel like its there to confuse us even more. As a plakat breeder its quite aggravating.

Haha! Sooo true! With juvies it's a "that's a boy... or maybe female" weeks long game and I'm not very fond of it.
