Dorsal spines (total): 2; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-9; Anal spines: 2-4; Anal soft rays: 23 - 25. Distinguished from other members from Sumatra, Indonesia in the following characters: more anal fin rays (27 vs. 23-25); more dorsal fin rays than Betta cracens and Betta fusca (10-11 vs. 8-9); more subdorsal scales than Betta cracens and B. fusca (6 1/2-7 vs. 5 1/2-6); more lateral scales than B. fusca (31 vs. 29); fewer lateral scales than Betta cracens (31 vs. 32-33); fewer predorsal scales than Betta cracens, Betta fusca and Betta raja (17-19 vs. 20-24); greater head length than Betta pugnax, Betta cracens and Betta fusca (35-.5-36.5% SL vs. 27.5-35.2); smaller predorsal length than Betta fusca (62.7-66.3% SL vs. 68.5-70.2); greater preanal length than Betta cracens (47.8-50.9% SL vs. 42.0-46.1); greater body depth than Betta cracens (26.7-27.6% SL vs. 21.2-24.2); greater dorsal fin base length than Betta cracens (12.4-13.9% SL vs. 10.5-11.6); smaller anal fin base length than Betta cracens (50.4-52.0% SL vs. 53.4-55.7); greater orbital diameter than Betta cracens and Betta fusca (61-76% postorbital length vs. 47-58) (Ref. 56386).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01122 (0.00514 - 0.02450), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
