(senior synonym, valid name)
It was described as a distinct species on morphological grounds by Morrow in 1973, but the concept of a separate species status was soon refuted, even by Morrow himself. Further genetic studies have also failed to distinguish this fish from the more widespread Dolly Varden trout (Salvelinus malma malma), and it is now considered to represent natural variation within that (sub)species.
