Actinopteri (ray-finned fishes) > Anabantiformes (Gouramies, snakeheads) > Badidae (Chameleonfishes)
Etymology: Badis: 'badis' is presumably a Bengali local name, possibly derived from 'bhedo' or 'bheda', but it lacks a proper reference. Probably incorrect etymology (J. Müller, pers. comm., April 2021, after information from native speakers);  laspiophilus: Derived from the Greek words λάσπη (láspi̱; mud) and ϕίλοϛ (philos; friend), in reference to the substrate of the type locality plus the benthic ecology of the new species. An adjective.

Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range Ecology
