On the status and identity of the white char, Salvelinus albus Glubokovsky, 1977, from different habitats

Abstract

The white char, Salvelinus albus Glubokovsky, 1977, which was originally described from the Kamchatka River basin, and the white char from Lake Kronotsky, Kamchatka Peninsula, are believed to be identical taxonomically and represent two reproductively isolated populations of the same species. However, the data on their molecular divergence show that they may differ at a higher, probably sub-species, level. This suggests the necessity of deeper complex studies of white char and other closely related char species and forms.
