Coregonus prognathus Smith: a nomen dubium




No unique phenotypes were observed among the specimens and no single species clearly dominated the samples. I conclude therefore that the species Coregonus prognathus has no taxonomic validity. Because of the poor condition and uncertain identity of the holotype, Coregonus prognathus should be considered a nomen dubium.
