Etymology: Betta: Siamese local name of the fish "ikan bettah";  dennisyongi: Named for Dennis Yong Ghong Chong, a distinguished and knowledgeable naturalist well experienced in many facets of tropical Southeast Asian fauna and flora with an avid interest in labyrinth fi shes. He has accompanied the author on many trips and shared many interesting stories, tips and gastronomic delights.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 1; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 2-3; Anal soft rays: 22 - 24; Vertebrae: 29 - 30. Differs from Betta rubra bypossessing the following characters: a continuous black postorbital stripe extending up to opercle edge (vs. interrupted stripe); broad suborbital stripe below eye forming a triangular black mark (4-5 scale rows wide, vs. 2-3); body coloration less intense with wider interspaces between the black body bars; fewer anal-fin n rays (mode 25, vs. 27); greater number of subdorsal scales (6-7 vs. 5-5 ½); greater number of lateral scales (mode 31, vs. 30); greater number of vertebrae (mode 30, vs. 29); longer dorsal-fin base length (13.0-18.4, vs. 11.0-13.4% SL); and smaller maximum size (35.4 vs. 42.1 mm SL) (Ref. 93059).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in lowland hillstream and acid water swamp habitats. Found in clear to brown-water habitats, from secondary forest to plantation and farmland environments. Syntopic with Osteochilus jeruk, Rasbora jacobsoni, Rasbora kluetensis (Cyprinidae); Nemacheilus tuberigum (Nemacheilidae); Mystus punctifer (Bagridae); and Ompok brevirictus, Kryptopterus piperatus (Siluridae) (Ref. 93059).

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), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±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) .
