Update: We initially referred to Badis ruber as a “labyrinth fish” in the caption above.  This was our editing error. They share relatives with the labrinthfishes. The magazine has it right.

“A special feature of the Badidae is their interesting reproductive behavior, which is similar to that of the labyrinthfishes. Because of this behavior it is assumed that labyrinthfishes and Badidae had common ancestors but then evolved separately. What remains in Badidae is a relic of the male wrapping around the female during mating.”
