Term for black edging on fins?

Hi, all! I have been trying to find out if there is a particular breeding term for the black edging some bettas have on their fins. (My silver mustard male has this, and I just think it's stunning.) Does it have a name? I've seen just a darker edging, too--I have a silver girl who has dark gray around the edges of her fins.

I believe it's just a butterfly pattern. Butterfly doesn't necessarily have to be white, that's just mostly what's out there.

Where I'm at butterflies are two fairly large bands on the fins. Black or what ever colored edging isn't considered as a band and there is no name for it . . . you can name it what ever you want :)
