Abstract: Betta pugnax (Cantor, 1850) is redescribed from type and topotypic material. The closely allied Betta pulchra, new species, is described from blackwater habitats of Pontian, Johor. It is distinguished from B. pugnax s. str. by having a stouter body, a narrowly instead of broadly lanceolate caudal fin, and more iridescent scales on the body in life.
