Salvethymus svetovidovi, also called the long-finned charr, is a species of salmonid fish. It is endemic to Elgygytgyn Lake in Chukotka, Eastern Siberia, Russian Federation,[1][2] together with another char species, the small-mouth char.[3]


The long-finned char is a morphologically aberrant type of char; when scientifically first described in 1990, it was placed as the single species in Salvethymus, a new monotypic genus. It is closely related to the true chars in the genus Salvelinus, and probably is a sister lineage to the Arctic char complex (Salvelinus alpinus).[4]
