What is a "Betta M. Eiern"

I'm looking at a section of my Animal Planet "Aquarium Care of Bettas" and there is a section called "The Betta Gallery" where they show the names of wild types along with their photos.. there is a photo of the chin of a reddish colored Betta looking up at a bubble nest... the name of the Betta type is "Betta m. eiern", I Googled it to look for more photos but it just shows these Bettas with a different name:

My question is, what does the "M. Eiern" look like?

m. eiern could stand for the german 'mit eiern' = 'with eggs' just what popped into my head when I saw the phrase.

Those are pictures of unimaculata spawning so if Neeklette has translated it, it could just be describing what they are doing.

Just realised you meant another betta. If it was under a bubblenest it probably had just spawned and so was with its eggs.

Okay, that would make sense, he was looking at a bubble nest lol.. It was just confusing because it was in there with all the other types of Bettas, I guess it was just bad placement for the photo.


Thank you both!
