Do all female bettas have an egg spot?

Looking at one of my females today and after I really close inspection, I couldn't find and egg spot?
Do they all have it or some don't, how does it works?

I would assume so because that's where their eggs come out of, so obviously if there isn't one it's not a female.

All my sorority "females" do. I mean, it's betta anatomy. Without the egg tube, (ovipositor) they won't be able to reproduce, right?

Does your female happen to have a big beard or long fins? 0.0

All the ones I've ever seen have the white dot.

So basically the white spot has to be visible, no matter what?

Actually it can be harder to see than you think. Some of my lighter bodied females I have to stuff full of food, until they are super eggy before the egg spot becomes more prominent.

That is exactly what i wanted to know, there is some lighted colored females that i can't see their ovipositor, but body shape is telling me that they are females.

It happens. Janey barely shows her however her fin length (some should focus mainly on the ventrals for plakat) and body shape, but only shows her spot at the peak of breeding.

Egg spots should be easily identifiable on adults. If not then they might be a male.
