Salvelinus colii

provided by wikipedia EN

Salvelinus colii, also called Cole's char,[4][5] Enniskillen char[6] or Trevelyan's char, is a cold-water species of char fish in the family Salmonidae.[7][8][9]

Salvelinus colii is currently located in Ireland, in several lakes[10] draining westward,[11] in County Clare, County Kerry, County Galway, County Mayo, County Donegal and County Westmeath.[12][1] Lough Ennell and Lough Conn are major sites.[13]

Taxonomy

Name

The English word "char[r]" is thought to derive from Old Irish ceara/cera meaning "[blood] red,"[14] referring to its pink-red underside.[15][16] This would also connect with its Welsh name torgoch, "red belly."[17]
