A new species of Betta from the B. waseri group is described based on recent material. It is closely allied to B. chloropharynx from Pulau Banka. Betta pardallotos differs from B. chloropharynx in having a slightly different throat pattern; spotted opercle and throat (vs. unmarked); even slopping or covexity at area posterior to upper jaw to supra-orbital area (vs. slight concavity) and other characters. This brings to eight members in the B. waseri group.
