The Krka softmouth trout inhabit very restricted area

Knin, Croatia. They sympatrically co-exist with brown
According to our observation, it is the most scarce
and endangered taxon of the softmouth trout.
Despite a trial (see Field

succeed to obtain samples of the Krka softmouth trout
therefore its DNA phylogeny still remains obscured.
